Probation and Loss of Award

Retaining Your Financial Aid

Any student who does not meet the minimum conditions for retaining a seminary grant or scholarship, as defined above, will be placed on probation for the following semester. If the student demonstrates appropriate improvement during the following semester, then probation is lifted and the student continues to be eligible for seminary financial assistance. 

If, however, the student fails to show sufficient improvement, then the student becomes ineligible for further financial assistance from the seminary, although he or she may, depending on the circumstances, be permitted to continue as a degree candidate. If a student who has previously been on probation should fail a second time to meet the minimum conditions, then the student becomes ineligible to receive further financial assistance from the seminary. 

If a student’s GPA falls below 2.0 in any semester, then he or she automatically forfeits financial assistance from the seminary; no probationary period will be allowed.
