Continuing Students, Lipscomb students can renew the scholarships they receive at entry. However, superior academic performance at Lipscomb does not allow for an increase in the award. You must retain a cumulative 3.0 to renew your scholarships.
Transfer Students, Academic scholarships for transfers are awarded according to cumulative college GPA. A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required. Students who have enrolled full-time at another college or university for one semester or more are considered transfer students.
