Provost Scholarship: If the Provost Scholarship is your interest and you wish to know more information about it and even apply, then this article will be of help to you. Read on!

Provost Scholarship

Undergraduate Admissions awards this scholarship to entering high school graduates in recognition of outstanding academic performance.

This scholarship program does not require a separate application. Students who apply for summer or fall terms at UCF are automatically considered. 

The Provost Program Requirements

This scholarship is given to exceptional high school students who have been accepted by Undergraduate Admissions for a summer or fall semester.

If you receive one of the scholarships in this program, you must keep the following information in mind.  Each fall and spring term, students must enroll full-time (a minimum of 12 UCF credit hours).

Dual or transient hours earned at another institution will not be counted toward full-time enrollment for this scholarship.

Students are exempt from the full-time enrollment requirement only during their graduating semester.  To be granted the exception, students must provide a memo on letterhead from their academic advisor stating: 

  • Student’s name and UCFID
  • Name of course(s) needed for graduation
  • Name of the undergraduate degree to be received
  • Semester graduation is expected

If a student enrolls in fewer than six UCF hours during their graduating semester, the UCF Scholarship Committee must approve the exception.

Students should submit their request at least two months before the start of their graduating semester to receive a decision before the start of the semester. 

In Cases of Scholarship Deferment

Students requesting a deferment must fill out a State Programs and Scholarships Appeal Form and submit a letter explaining why they are requesting the deferment, along with supporting documentation.

The appeal must be submitted at least two months before the start of the semester for which the deferment is requested.

Failure to obtain approval before leaving the university will result in scholarship cancellation.

Provost Scholarship Enrollment

Each fall and spring semester, students must enroll full-time (a minimum of 12 UCF credit hours).

Students may appeal to the UCF Scholarship Committee if extenuating circumstances prevent them from enrolling full-time. Appeals must be submitted before the semester in which the exception is sought.

Failure to obtain approval to enroll less than full-time will result in scholarship cancellation.

Requirements for Provost Scholarship Renewal

Academic progress is evaluated once a year, following the release of spring grades. Students must meet the following requirements each year to renew their scholarship:

1. To be eligible for this award, students must enroll in at least 12 credit hours during the fall and spring semesters.

2. Students admitted before the fall of 2024 must complete a total of 24 credit hours between the previous fall and spring terms.

For example, if a student enrolled in 12 hours during the fall semester and earned 9 hours, the student would need to enroll in and complete 15 hours during the spring semester in order to have earned an average of 24 hours by the end of the evaluation period.

3. Students admitted after fall 2024 must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours per academic year, fall/spring/summer combined. Students who do not earn 30 credit hours between the fall and spring semesters may use the summer term to meet the 30 credit hour renewal requirement.

Repeat Checking refers to how the University treats classes that you have taken more than once. If you repeat a class, there are implications for your GPA and academic level (freshman, sophomore, etc). However, normally, repeated classes do not result in additional credit counting towards the degree.
