Chicago-Kent Scholarship Policies
Chicago-Kent provides a range of scholarships to reward
academic performance and to help lessen financial need.
The following scholarship policies concern these awards
and appear in Section 13.3 of the Student
||Students who received renewable scholarships
upon admission to the College are automatically considered
for renewal based on their academic performance.
In order to continue to receive a renewable scholarship,
the student must maintain the specified rank or GPA,
at the end of each academic year, on a continuing basis.
The class rank or GPA required for renewal, as well
as other terms of renewability, are set forth in the
scholarship acceptance form signed by the student.
||Merit scholarships are generally awarded
to students who rank in the top 25% of their graduating
class. The number of merit scholarships awarded,
and the amount of the awards, are not guaranteed and
are limited by funds available in the scholarship budget
in any given year.
||Full-tuition scholarships, half-tuition
scholarships and other scholarships based on a percentage
of tuition, are calculated based on the cost of tuition
for a 28 credit hour year for full-time day-division
students and a 20 credit hour year for part-time day
and evening-division students.
||All scholarships are distributed one-half
in the fall semester, one-half in the spring semester,
and only in the semesters in which the student is enrolled.
Scholarships may not be applied to summer sessions.
Students who visit at another school or who accelerate
their graduation will forfeit a portion of their scholarship
||Scholarships may not be completely
transferable from one division to another division.
Students transferring divisions should consult with
the Director of Admissions to determine the percentage
of their scholarship which is transferable.
||Renewable scholarships, merit-based
scholarships and student activity scholarships are not
cumulative and students will receive only the highest
award for which they qualify. For example, a student
receiving a renewable scholarship, who then qualifies
for a merit scholarship, based on class rank, will receive
the higher of the two awards.
