Eligibility Standards

Southeastern Scholarships

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Students should maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA or above to receive institutional aid, with preference given to students with higher GPAs. Students with a status of Academic Probation (a term and/or cumulative GPA below 2.0) are ineligible for institutional aid and should expect their aid to be removed.

 

Enrollment Status

Students must be degree-seeking at SEBTS to be eligible for institutional financial aid; “credit-only” students are ineligible.

Students must remain enrolled at full-time status for the entire semester to receive the full amount of any institutional award. Students who are enrolled at half-time or below are considered ineligible for any institutional awards.

Students enrolled at part-time status before the drop-date will have their awards reduced by 50%. Graduate students who withdraw from courses after the drop-date and fall below full-time status will have their institutional financial aid reduced by 33% for each course they withdraw from. Those who fall at half-time or below will lose any remaining aid. Please note, students who withdraw are charged the full cost of any courses they withdraw from.

Students in continuous enrollment classes should not expect to receive institutional financial aid.

 

Additional Information

Except where otherwise specified, all institutional scholarships are open to campus and distance-learning students.

Most institutional scholarships are tuition-specific and cannot be refunded to the student as cash or a check.

Students eligible for substantial external types of aid, such as the Keesee and CSA Grants, are expected to apply for those in conjunction with Southeastern’s Standard Financial Aid Application.

Other Scholarships

Graduate students at Southeastern are not eligible for government aid (such as Federal Pell Grant, Direct Loans, etc.). If you are a college student, please visit The College at Southeastern Eligibility Page for more information about the requirements for each award.

 

For students who are receiving other external scholarships, it is important to know and understand all of the eligibility standards. The organization that funds the scholarship is the best source of information regarding the scholarship. Students should be sure to read any award letters that they receive entirely and check the organization’s website for more information.
