Application and Notification

Upon being accepted for graduate school, your overall undergraduate GPA will be evaluated automatically by the College of Graduate Studies to determine your Carr Academic Scholarship eligibility. No additional application is necessary.

If you are selected for a Carr Academic Scholarship, you will be notified via email.


The Carr Academic Graduate Scholarship will disburse based on students’ total enrolled hours for the semester.

  • 9 or more semester credit hours = 100%
  • 6-8 semester credit hours = 75%
  • 3-5 semester credit hours = 50%

Repeated coursework will not be counted toward your enrollment requirements for disbursement.

Many graduate programs are on an 8-week schedule. We encourage students to register for 1st 8-week and 2nd 8-week courses at the beginning of the semester. After the university’s census date (12th class day of a regular semester), awards cannot be adjusted to account for additional course work.

Scholarship Duration

This scholarship is not to exceed 3 years (6 long semesters) or master’s degree, whichever comes first.

Out of State Tuition

Students that qualify for a Carr Academic Graduate Scholarship will be granted in-state tuition for the duration of their scholarship.

Renewal Requirements

To continue receiving your Carr Academic Graduate Scholarship, you must:

  • Complete 12 semester credit hours each year
  • Maintain an institutional GPA of 3.50 or higher
  • Complete your degree within 3 years
  • Maintain continuous enrollment 

Students who graduate with their master’s degree are no longer eligible.  Students who graduate within the 3 years and return to complete more coursework are no longer eligible for the Carr Academic Graduate Scholarship.

Dropping Classes & Withdrawing

Students who drop below 9 hours on or before the university’s census date (12th class day of a regular semester) will have their Carr Academic Scholarship disbursement prorated, which may create a balance due to the university.

Students who withdraw may be required to reapply to the university. Students who have to reapply are no longer eligible for their Carr Academic Scholarship.
