Baylor Scholarship and Grant Appeal
To retain eligibility for a merit-based scholarship or Baylor Need-Based Grant, specific requirements must be met. In some circumstances, you may appeal for an exception to these requirements. If you have lost your Tuition Equalization Grant (TEG) and need to submit an appeal to renew it, please visit the TEG Hardship Appeal page. If you have lost federal financial aid (Pell grant, work-study, loans) due to not meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements, please submit a separate SAP appeal. Both the TEG and SAP Appeals are linked to the right. The Baylor Scholarship and Grant Appeal is for Baylor-specific scholarships and grants only.
Please provide as much relevant information as possible to ensure the committee can make a fair assessment of your situation. Once the committee reviews your request, you will receive an email notifying you of their decision. Submissions will only be processed once grades are posted for the term preceding the term of appeal and should be completed in 4-5 business days.
The Baylor Scholarship and Grant Appeal can be used to appeal the following requirements:
- Your merit-based scholarship and/or need-based grant has been cancelled due to academic performance and you have not met the minimum CGPA requirement for reinstatement:
- Your merit-based scholarship and/or need-based grant has been cancelled due to academic performance and your CGPA meets the minimum requirement for reinstatement:
- You are not enrolled full-time in the term of your graduation.
- You are graduating in less than 8 semesters and would like to receive your merit-based scholarship in a summer term. Based on reduced tuition/fee rates, we will cap merit-based scholarship awards at tuition for summer 2023.
The following scenarios cannot be appealed:
- Need-based grants cannot be used in summer terms.
- If a student graduates early and has not used all eight semesters of their scholarship, they cannot add the unused semester amounts to their final semester at Baylor resulting in two semesters worth of scholarships in one term. (For example, if you are graduating in the Fall after seven semesters, you cannot add the eighth semester of your scholarship to your Fall awards).
