*PSA & SUPO staff reserve the right to place scholarship recipients on mandatory academic study schedules at any time and for any reason. Students with a semester GPA below a 2.5 will be placed on probation. Students with a cumulative GPA below 2.5 will be dismissed from the scholarship program. Probationary students will be under review upon completion of each semester. Failure to pass 24 academic credits at the end of the academic year will result in automatic dismissal. Failure to comply with the contract requirements and evident academic improvement will result in loss of scholarship. Students with a GPA of 2.0 or below will not be eligible for scholarship renewal. Students compliant with the PSA contract may be given some flexibility, depending on their level of academic success in courses taken at SVSU. The PSA coordinator may add or remove requirements as needed.
