Carr Scholarship Program
Terms, Conditions, and 
Satisfactory Academic Progress

To continue receiving the Carr Scholarship, students must meet specific eligibility requirements. Please review the terms, conditions, and satisfactory academic progress requirements for your Carr Scholarship below. 

  • Carr Scholarships received as Freshmen from High School

    Terms and Conditions

    Disbursements 

    Students must be enrolled full time (12 semester credit hours) for the Carr Scholarship to disburse. Angelo State University recommends that Carr Scholarship recipients enroll in 15 semester credit hours (SCH) each fall and spring semester because they are more likely to graduate in 8 long semesters/4 years. 

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

    Dropping Classes & Withdrawing

    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 census date (12th class day of a regular semester) will have their Carr Scholarship disbursement canceled, which may create a balance due to the university.

    Students who withdraw from the university may be required to reapply to the university. Students who have to reapply are no longer eligible for their Carr Scholarship. Students who decided to ‘sit out’ for a long semester (fall or spring) will have to reapply for the university making them ineligible for their Carr Scholarship. 

    Carr Satisfactory Academic Progress (CSAP)

    The Scholarship Programs Office will review your progress at the end of each spring semester to determine if you qualify for continued eligibility of your Carr Scholarship. You must meet all of the following CSAP standards:

      • 3.0 institutional GPA at the end of each subsequent academic year
