Tulane Merit Scholarship Continuation Information

Students who are at risk for losing their Tulane Merit Scholarship can work with the Success Staff to progress toward good standing with their merit scholarship. Students that utilize our office are required to create a plan with a Success Coach. If you are a candidate for the continuation of your Tulane Merit Scholarship, then you are notified via your Tulane email.

Who benefits from the probationary period:

  • Students who did not meet GPA requirements for scholarship
  • Students who fell below full time academic status (12 credits)
  • Students who are returning from a leave of absence (medical and non-medical)
  • Student who were previously on probation who fulfilled requirements for probation, but did not reach the cumulative GPA requirement. These students may continue to utilize the Merit Scholarship Continuation as long as they make progress toward the cumulative GPA requirement.

Important Reminder:

Students who were previously on probation and did not meet semester GPA requirement or credit hours will lose their scholarship and have the opportunity to appeal the loss of their scholarship. Students may appeal cancellation of scholarship to the Financial Aid Appeals Committee. The basis of the appeal must be extraordinary circumstances that were beyond the student’s control such as serious, extended physical or mental condition. Appeals may be approved or denied by the Committee.
