    Terms and Conditions

    Disbursing the Carr Academic Scholarship  

    Angelo State University recommends that Carr Scholarship recipients enroll in 15 semester credit hours (SCH) each fall and spring semester. By enrolling in 15 SCH, Carr recipients may graduate in eight long semesters. 

    Repeated, developmental and dual-credit coursework will not be counted toward your SCH enrollment requirements for disbursement.

    All Carr Scholarship recipients are required to successfully complete at least 30 SCH each academic year during the four consecutive academic years following their initial enrollment at ASU. 

    Before students drop a class, they should always check with the Scholarship Programs Office to see if the change will affect their Carr Scholarship eligibility.

    Students who withdraw from the university or drop below the required 12 SCH on or before the university’s 12th class day of a semester will have their Carr Scholarship disbursement canceled, and they may owe a balance to the university.

    Renewal Terms and Conditions

    Students awarded a Carr Scholarship are eligible for eight consecutive long semesters (fall/spring), as long as they meet the Carr Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements or until they receive their first baccalaureate degree.  Students meeting Carr Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements may qualify for Carr Summer scholarships.  The Carr Summer scholarships are in addition to the academic award.
