Fall 2020 Scholarships FAQ

Scholarship FAQs for Fall 2020 Freshmen: 

A: Yes. If you choose not to enroll, please notify the BGSU Office of Admissions that you are not attending BGSU in the upcoming semester, but plan to enroll in January 2021.  You will be required to apply for admissions for Spring 2021 by Dec. 15, 2020, to be eligible to have the scholarship reinstated.  The application for admissions may be found here.

If you choose to attend another college or university for the fall semester, you will be required to have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 at the end of your fall term at the other college/university to receive the scholarship.  This requirement will be confirmed when the official transcript is received.  If you do not meet the GPA requirement, you will have the scholarship removed from your Student Financial Aid account.

If you attend another college or university, you will lose one semester of eligibility on the original scholarship.  Typically scholarships are available for 8 semesters (4 academic years), but if you have enrolled at another college or university, you will receive the scholarship for 7 semesters (3 ½ years).
