May I submit an appeal if my scholarship is suspended?
Upon notification of suspension from your scholarship, you will receive instructions regarding the online appeal process. The appeal process begins immediately after we notify you, so it is important to check your TAMU email account and Financial Aid Portal regularly.
May I Q-drop a class?
Yes, you may Q-Drop a class. It is important to note, however, that a Q-dropped class will be marked as incomplete. Therefore, it will not count as earned credit applied towards your 30-60-90 hours requirement.
Scholarship recipients that are enrolled at Texas A&M must have a minimum of 30 cumulative earned hours by the end of their first academic year, 60 cumulative earned hours by the end of their second academic year, and 90 cumulative earned hours by the end of their third academic year. Dual credit/AP credit/ or transfer hours may be included in your cumulative earned hours.
What happens if I have to withdraw from the university?
For all classifications, the scholarship funds will remain applied even if you withdraw after funds have disbursed to your student billing account. That semester will count against your multi-year scholarship allotment. Following the semester in which you withdraw you may be placed on probation or suspension if you did not complete the required hours for your scholarship.
Will my mid-term grades be monitored for my scholarship?
Yes. After mid-term grades have posted for first-year freshmen scholarship recipients, students that post below their scholarship requirements will be notified of their current progress by the office of Scholarships and Financial Aid for Scholarship SAP purposes. Mid-term grades are reviewed during both the fall and spring semesters for all first-year freshmen scholarship recipients. Upperclassmen will not have their midterm grades monitored for their scholarship purposes.
