Students awarded specific institutional merit scholarships and students participating in the President Barack Obama Scholars Program or ASU College Attainment Grant Program must begin study at ASU in the fall semester following high school graduation. Consecutive enrollment in fall and spring semesters is required for renewal. Institutional merit scholarships, President Barack Obama Scholars Program and ASU College Attainment Grant Program funds may be awarded for a maximum of eight semesters.

Submission Deadlines

  • All scholarship and financial aid programs - Aug. 1.
  • Merit students with conditionally approved, fall-only awards - Dec. 31.

Completed appeals must be received by close of business on the appeal deadline. Late requests will not be accepted.

This form allows students who did not meet scholarship renewal criteria the opportunity to request a review of their scholarship eligibility if there are special or unusual circumstances.

This form allows ASU merit scholarship, Obama, CAG, FA Trust and AZ Grad Tuition Scholarships recipients to have their award released when they are enrolled less than full time in their final term of study.

Completed requests must be submitted to Financial Aid and Scholarship Services at least 30 days before the start date of your final semester.
