For students currently enrolled at Shenandoah University and receiving university scholarships, it is not necessary to reapply each year. However, each scholarship may have academic or enrollment requirements in order for students maintain eligibility for these funds. Most SU scholarship programs will require students to, at minimum:

  • Maintain full-time enrollment each semester
  • Maintain a GPA of at least 2.5 (Presidential and Conservatory Scholarships require a GPA of 3.0)
  • Meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements as defined by the Office of Financial Aid

Some scholarship programs have additional requirements beyond those listed above. Conservatory Scholarship recipients should contact the Shenandoah Conservatory for requirement information. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid if you have any questions or make any changes to your enrollment or degree program. Eligibility for scholarships awarded by SU does not exceed four years.


Outside Scholarships

Students are strongly encouraged to pursue scholarships from outside the university. Your home community and the Internet can be great potential sources for a scholarship. Also, do not stop applying for scholarships once you have been enrolled at Shenandoah University. Outside scholarship opportunities will continue to become available throughout the academic career.

If you receive scholarships from outside of Shenandoah University, please make our office aware by submitting the Declaration of Outside Grants and Scholarships Form available at the Office of Financial Aid’s Web site and is included in the financial aid award package.
