If I am on a merit scholarship, how might the alternative grading mode affect me?

For students receiving merit scholarships, they will need to determine what the GPA is for keeping those scholarships. For many of the Admissions scholarships, that cut off is a 2.75 GPA. If the student had less than 2.75 in the previous term and select all alternate grades, they cannot bring up that GPA and that would disqualify them for scholarship renewal.
Alternately, if the student’s GPA is above the thresholds from the previous term and they select all alternative grades, their scholarship renewal would calculate off the previous term GPA. Students will need to determine what the GPA requirement is for their individual scholarships and act accordingly in terms of their overall GPA.
