DePaul Academic Scholarship Reinstatement Appeal

Academic Year 2024/2025 DePaul Academic Scholarship Reinstatement Appeal Form

Academic scholarships may be renewed for up to four consecutive years (12 quarters) of undergraduate study if you maintain good academic standing. You must be enrolled full-time each quarter and earn at least 36 quarter hours for the Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters.

If you feel that exceptional circumstances kept you from meeting the above renewal requirements of your scholarship and you have a solid plan for corrective action, you may appeal for the reinstatement of your scholarship. Please use this application to explain the circumstances and submit any supporting documentation.

Please understand that submission of an appeal does not guarantee reinstatement. The Office of Financial Aid reserves the right to deny an appeal, reinstate at a reduced amount, or change the source or type of funding of the original award in the appeal process. Once your appeal is submitted, you will receive a decision within 7-10 business days.

This appeal is specifically regarding the following undergraduate scholarships:
State Scholar Plus Scholarship
Presidential Scholarship
Dean’s Scholarship
DePaul Scholars Award
St. Vincent DePaul Scholarship
Catholic Heritage Scholarship
Chicago Promise Scholarship
Vincentian Award
Global DePaul Scholarship
Transfer/Phi Theta Kappa/DAPP/Chicago STAR/Heritage Scholarships

Please note: if you are not currently meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) you may also be ineligible to receive the rest of your financial aid including Federal Student Aid such as Federal Direct Loans and State/Federal Grants. If that is your situation, please visit the University’s website for information on how to submit a SAP Appeal.
