Renewable:

Yes, this award is renewable as long as the student maintains Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) and remains in good standing with the University. "Good standing" shall be determined as follows:

In support of Cedarville University's commitment to the individual and communal benefits of the Cedarville community covenant, an annual review of student conduct will be required for scholarship renewal. Any student who, in the sole discretion of the Student Life Deans on a case-by-case basis, has demonstrated a pattern of conduct that indicates disregard for University policies will not be considered eligible for scholarship renewal.

If a student believes his/her status of scholarship eligibility was determined in error or inappropriately, the student has the option to appeal. The student should submit a letter of appeal that details the factors that should be considered in his/her scholarship standing with the University, as well as his/her plans to address the concerns which led to the standing. Submit the appeal to the Director for Student Development within 14 days of notice of non-renewal. The appeal will be reviewed and the student will receive a response within two weeks of a complete submission of the appeal.


* The SBACS full-tuition scholarship may be used for eight semesters (fall and spring terms) of course work provided you are enrolled full time and continue in good standing at the University. When awarded, this SBACS full-tuition guarantee will include all forms of gift-based aid, including institutional academic and need-based aid, federal aid, state aid, or other forms of outside aid for which a student may qualify. Scholarships will be awarded competitively, based on scholarship applications submitted by interested students.
