University of North Alabama Scholarships

Due to unprecedented circumstances associated with the COVID19 crisis, UNA will lower the GPA renewal requirement for the 2020 -2021 Academic, Vanguard and Leadership scholarships.

• Academic Scholarships currently require 3.25 institutional GPA, lowered to 3.00
• Leadership and Vanguard Scholarships currently require 3.00 institutional GPA, lowered to 2.75

The lowered standard is only effective for the 2020-2021 renewals. To be eligible for scholarship renewals in the 2021-2022 academic year, you must meet the original minimum GPA requirement associated with your scholarship. The credit hours completed requirement has not been updated and remains at 27 credit hours per academic year.

All scholarship renewals have been posted for 2020-2021 pending review after spring 2020 grades are posted. If renewal criteria is not met after the spring 2020 term, your scholarship will be cancelled for the upcoming academic year.

If you have any questions, you may contact the Office of Student Financial Aid at 256.765.4278 or 256.765.5639 or by text message at 256.474.7262 or email
