Scholarship Renewal

Get to know the process

The information on this page is specific to the scholarships awarded by the Office of Enrollment Management (OEM), which includes the Office of Scholarships.

The notification letter for each scholarship is your best resource to determine the specific parameters of your funding, but the FAQs below can help answer some common questions. If you need more information about your specific scholarship, please contact us.

Renewing your scholarship

IU Academic Scholarships—Dean’s, Provost’s, and Global Engagement—and other OEM scholarships will be renewed if you meet the following criteria each semester:

  1. Maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 at Indiana University. You can check your cumulative GPA at Note: Scholarship renewal is based on the cumulative GPA listed under “Program Statistics,” not the one listed under “IU Statistics.”
  2. Remain enrolled full-time (12 or more credit hours) as a degree-seeking student on the IU Bloomington campus. Waitlisted courses do not count toward official enrollment. Students in their final semester may receive OEM scholarships for part-time enrollment if they have successfully applied for graduation for that semester.*

Scholarships from IU departments, centers, or schools outside of OEM might have different renewal policies. Contact them to check their guidelines for renewal.

*To check your graduation status any time, log in to Student Center in One.IU. On the left side of the screen, select "My Academics and Grades," and then click "Graduation Status" on the bottom-right side of the screen.

Renewal eligibility

Scholarship renewal eligibility will be reviewed on an annual basis at the end of each spring semester. There is no mid-year review.

If a student does not meet the renewal criteria at the end of the spring semester, scholarships will not be renewed for the following academic year (fall, spring, and summer). If the cumulative GPA is raised to the required level by the end of the next spring semester, scholarships will be reinstated by early July for the following academic year. Students who raise their cumulative program GPA to a 3.0 or higher prior to the start of the fall semester will be automatically reassessed. If a scholarship has not disbursed within the first week of fall enrollment, please contact us.
