The Invest in Success Scholarship is awarded to first-year and transfer students in good standing who in their first semester completed 15 or more credits with at least a 3.75 grade point average (GPA).
For the scholarship to renew, first-year and second-year students must successfully complete at least 15 credit hours each Fall/Spring semester with a 3.25 cumulative GPA.
Effective Fall 2022: third-year, fourth-year and fifth-year students must complete a total of 30 credits each year (not including Summer/Winterlude) with a 3.25 cumulative GPA.
