All scholarships are subject to the availability of funds and are subject to change.
Any reduction in semester credit hours below the minimum before the twelfth class day will be subject to revocation of scholarship and the student will be responsible for any charges incurred. Any change after the twelfth class day is not subject to a reduction but may hinder future awards
A withdrawal from the University prior to the University official census date will revoke the scholarship. The student will be responsible for any charges incurred. A withdrawal from the University after the University official census date is not subject to revocation, however the student is still responsible for any charges incurred by the withdrawal.
All scholarship recipients awarded through the A&M-Texarkana Financial Aid Office are required to be degree-seeking or certificate seeking with A&M-Texarkana.
University scholarship awards cannot exceed a student’s full tuition and fee charges
University academic scholarship recipients may also pursue “need-based” financial aid, however, the student’s total award may not exceed the student’s "financial need" as determined by the Federal Need Analysis. In some cases, a student’s financial aid award must be reduced or cancelled in order for the student to receive the scholarship.
Waivers to the scholarship criteria will be made for special circumstances only, and will be approved by the University Scholarship Committee and the University President. These waivers will allow for special circumstances including but not limited to illness, death of a family member, deployment, special work conditions or other good cause.
All academic scholarship recipients are REQUIRED to submit a "letter of appreciation" to the Financial Aid Office with the name of their scholarship included in the letter.
If the student receiving the Albert Loftin Scholarship does not enroll at A&M-Texarkana or does not remain enrolled as a full-time student, the scholarship becomes an interest-bearing note. The first payment will be due October 1st, with compound interest accruing at 10% effective September 1st. The total amount of Loftin Scholarship funds received to date must then be repaid within twelve (12) months. (EXCEPTION: Student teaching will be considered as full-time for scholarship purposes only).
Partial Satisfactory Academic Progress will be monitored at the end of each semester. Full Satisfactory Academic Progress will be monitored at the end of Spring (or Summer for Arnold Awards only). Students will be responsible for contacting the Financial Aid Office once all summer grades are posted, in order to be reviewed for scholarship renewal.
A student who wishes to appeal this ruling on the basis of "extenuating circumstances" must do so in writing to the Financial Aid Office. The appeal decision will be made by the Appeal Committee, and the student will be notified by email of the decision.
All scholarship recipients are selected without discrimination based on age, sex, race, or religion.
