May I submit an appeal if my scholarship is suspended?
Upon notification of having been suspended from your scholarship you will receive instructions regarding the online appeal process. The appeal process happens immediately after notification is sent out, so it is important to check your TAMU email account and Financial Aid Portal regularly for notification.
May I Q-drop a class?
Yes, however, there are a few things to consider if you decide to utilize a Q-drop, as a class that has been Q-dropped will not be considered complete.
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.
A Q-dropped class will not count as earned credit and will, therefore, not count towards the cumulative hours you must earn for your scholarship.
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 will either be 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 scholarship recipients, students that post below their scholarship requirements will be required to complete a mid-term advising and tutoring requirement. Mid-term grades are reviewed during both the fall and spring semesters for all first-year scholarship recipients. Students in subsequent years will not have their midterm grades monitored for their scholarships.
