WHY A GUARANTEED SCHOLARSHIP HELPS
Jessica is a good student (high school GPA of 3.5) with two scholarship offers. One is The Akron Guarantee Scholarship. The other is a traditional scholarship from another university.
The Akron Guarantee Scholarship is guaranteed up to four years as long as she maintains a 2.0.
Let’s say Jessica’s first-year coursework is tougher than expected. Her GPA is 2.8. How would Jessica's scholarship choice play out?
At Akron, Jessica keeps the Akron Guarantee Scholarship.
At the other university, her scholarship may end because her GPA fell below the minimum requirement, which can be 3.0 or 3.25.
TIP: Understand the renewal requirements for your scholarships before you choose a college.
