General Scholarship Eligibility Requirements:
To maintain eligibility for OSU’s University Scholars Program (USP) scholarships, students must maintain continuous full-time enrollment (12 or more credits) in each Fall, Winter, and Spring term. While participating in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP), USP Scholarship recipients must enroll in at least 6 credits at OSU each term, enroll in at least 12 credits total between OSU and their partner institution, and designate OSU as their home school.
To be eligible for scholarship renewal for the next year, students must meet the minimum cumulative GPA and annual credit completion requirements at the end of each Spring term, as described in the terms and conditions associated with the original scholarship award. Transfer credits and credits earned in high school (AP, IB, etc.) do not count toward your annual credit completion requirement. Select a scholarship below to view the specific cumulative GPA and credit completion requirements.
Students are responsible for keeping track of their progress toward meeting the scholarship renewal requirements. Failure to meet the award requirements either during a single term or at the end of the Spring term will result in the cancellation of the scholarship and all remaining award terms. Following the cancellation of a scholarship, students may submit an appeal requesting reinstatement of the scholarship to the OSU Scholarship Office by the appropriate appeal submission deadline.
