Scholarship Renewal Criteria - Capital University Law School

Scholarship Renewal Criteria

  • Barristers, Presidential, Trustees’ and Dean’s Merit Scholarships  

    Scholarships are renewed annually if the student maintains the required cumulative grade point average (GPA). The cumulative GPA is reviewed once per academic year after all spring grades have been verified.  If renewed, funds will be applied to the subsequent fall and spring semesters. 

    First-Year Evening Students:  The cumulative GPA is reviewed at the end of the required summer semester.  If grades for summer courses are not completed by the start of fall semester, renewal funds may not be available until after the start of the fall semester. 

    Cumulative GPA for continuing evening students is reviewed after spring semester grades.
