    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 will graduate in eight long semesters.

    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.
