Payment of Awards
All awards, except Federal Work-Study earnings, and some Federal Stafford Loans, and Federal PLUS Loans, are disbursed to students by means of a direct credit to their account. Financial aid disbursements are made on a semester-by-semester basis only; disbursement of all awards is dependent upon final approval by the Director of Financial Aid. Only when a studentís file is complete can aid be credited to the account.

Renewal of Awards
Renewal FAFSA information is provided to students by the U.S. Department of Education. Students must meet the eligibility requirements indicated above and file the appropriate applications for each program. The preferred deadline for receipt of a completed financial aid file is May 1. Applicants whose files become complete after this time will be considered based upon availability of funds.

For renewal of the Oglethorpe Scholars Award, all students must maintain a cumulative grade-point average consistent with good academic standing. A 3.2 or higher grade-point average is required for renewal of a James Edward Oglethorpe scholarship.

Students who fail to meet the cumulative grade-point average requirement may attend Oglethorpeís summer school program in order to make up deficiencies. Courses taken elsewhere will not affect the cumulative grade-point average at Oglethorpe.

In addition to the cumulative grade-point average requirement, students must earn at least 24 semester hours during the current academic year. Students who are deficient in the number of hours required might attend summer school at Oglethorpe. Students also have the option of submitting a written appeal to the Admission and Financial Aid Committee.

Students who meet the scholarship renewal criteria will have their awards automatically renewed for the next academic year.
