Have you Earned your 3.0 LIFE GPA & LIFE CREDIT HOURS?
You must meet the following criteria to earn or renew your SC LIFE Scholarship for the 2023-2024 academic year:
1. Earn at least a 3.0 “LIFE GPA” by the end of the academic year (the academic year includes the fall, spring, and summer terms). The LIFE GPA calculates all grades earned for all college coursework at any eligible college including college courses taken while still in high school (a transcript for each college you have attended must be on file with The Citadel’s Registrar Office).
2. Meet the average annual “LIFE CREDIT HOURS” by the end of each academic year based on your initial college enrollment:
a) Earn a minimum of 30 credit hours if entering your second year, or
b) Earn a minimum of 60 credit hours if entering your third year, or
c) Earn a minimum of 90 credit hours if entering your fourth year.
3. Continue to meet all other eligibility requirements. If you have questions about the eligibility requirements, click HERE to visit the SC Commission on Higher Education’s website.
CHECK YOUR LIFE SCHOLARSHIP ELIGIBILITY
You should check your LIFE Scholarship eligibility by signing onto Lesesne Gateway to view your LIFE GPA & HOURS. It is important to review your LIFE GPA & HOURS to determine if you should take a summer class(s) to remain/become eligible for the 2023-2024 academic year.
It is always a good idea to visit the Student Success Center to evaluate what would be required to become eligible by the end of the summer and also the Registrar’s Office to see if the summer classes will transfer and count toward your degree.
If awarded the scholarship for 2023-2024, you will be required to sign the LIFE Scholarship Affidavit before the funds are disbursed to your account.
Please feel free to contact the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships at 843-953-5187 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
