Scholarship Appeals


The purpose of this page is to provide clear guidelines for students preparing a scholarship appeal. If you have additional questions or concerns after reading this page please feel free to contact the Scholarship Office.

Most scholarship appeals relate to issues with Academic Scholarships.

Students with issues surrounding a Departmental scholarship should make every effort to resolve the problem with the department before making an appeal to the Scholarship Committee.

Students making a scholarship appeal are strongly encouraged to obtain supporting documentation from faculty, staff, physician, etc., but not from family members.

If you are appealing for medical reasons, you will need to fill out the medical appeal form in addition to the acholarship appeal form. If you are appealing due to medical reasons, but did not contact the Scholarship Office and/or ADA Coordinator as noted below, you will need to explain why you did not do so.

Scholarship Contract:

Students have the responsibility to follow the requirements set forth in the scholarship contract they signed. A copy of this contract is e-mailed to all students when scholarships are awarded. By accepting the scholarship on your Badger Web you are agreeing to the terms contained within the scholarship contract.


Loss of scholarship due to grades and/or credits

Students will loose a scholarship if they do not meet or exceed the GPA/Credit requirement on the scholarship contract. If you lost the scholarship because grades and/or credits have not yet been posted, you have until the end of the third week of the semester to rectify the situation.

If you have lost a scholarship due to grades, your first course of action should be to contact all your instructors to verify that all your grades are accurate. If a grade change is made that meets or exceeds the GPA requirement please contact the Scholarship Office immediately so we can reinstate your scholarship. Please note that we cannot reinstate the scholarship until the grade is posted. Grade changes must be made as early as possible following the grades in question.



ADA Appeals

Students appealing for a reduction of course load and/or required GPA due to medical or other disabilities must first have documentation on file with the ADA Coordinator.

Students with medical, psychological, learning or other disabilities desiring accommodations, academic adjustments, or auxiliary aids will need to contact the Accessibility Resource Center located in the Student Success Center, Greenwood Student Center, phone number 435-283-7321. On the Richfield Campus contact the Accessibility Resource Center located in the Student Success Center, Washburn Building, phone number 435-893-2211. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Coordinator at the Accessibility Resource Center (ACR) determines eligibility for and authorizes the provision of appropriate services and aids.

Appeals for this purpose will be considered throughout the semester, but we do encourage students to appeal as early as possible.

 

Medical Appeals

If you could not meet the GPA/Credit requirement because of medical reasons that took place during the semester, please fill out the medical appeal form in addition to the scholarship appeal form.



95 Credit Rule:

The rule: Any Snow College student with more than 95 credits must petition the Scholarship Committee to be considered for any Snow College scholarship.

Students appealing this rule must have an academic reason for staying at Snow College. Students are strongly encouraged to obtain supporting documentation from a faculty member AND document the courses you expect to complete. Appeals for this purpose will be considered throughout the semester, but we encourage students to appeal as early as possible.

Students appealing under this category are appealing for the right to be considered for a scholarship. If the appeal is approved, it does NOT automatically mean the student will receive a scholarship.

You should also know that remaining at Snow College and earning additional credit may have a direct impact on Financial Aid consideration and/or an ability to transfer to certain institutions. We strongly encourage you to speak with the Financial Aid Office and an Academic Advisor.
