The Award That Can Grow With You

An Award For Every Degree-Seeking Student**
Make it Grow As You Go

There's no question: earning a college degree takes a lot of determination and effort. That’s why at DeVry University – from day one to graduation day – we’re committed to recognizing your achievements and rewarding your hard work.

Introducing the DeVry University Scholarship and Grant, created on the belief that every DeVry student deserves help getting started and motivation to keep going strong. With this tiered award program, all new undergraduate students with a GPA of 2.0 or above are eligible for awards that can grow along with your grade point average. And your award can keep growing every year you’re in school – up to $25,000 in tuition savings over the course of enrollment.

Be recognized for your performance and rewarded for your persistence. The DeVry University Scholarship is helping a DeVry education become more affordable for more students than ever before.

**Must meet enrollment-based criteria. This scholarship/grant cannot be used in combination with any other offer or award or group-specific tuition rate.

How It Works

DeVry University Scholarship and Grant are available to applicants based on their incoming GPA and enrollment level. All qualifying students enrolling in associate or bachelor’s degree programs will receive an award ranging from $500 per qualifying semester*** up to a $25,000 lifetime award cap.

***A semester equals two 8-week sessions. There are three academic semesters per year.

Scholarship/Grant Tiers

Award amounts are tiered according to student GPA and enrollment status (half time, three-quarter time or full time). The higher the cumulative grade point average (CPGA), the larger the award amount may be, reaching up to $2,500 per semester for full-time enrollment with a 3.25 GPA or higher for the scholarship. Students with a 2.5 – 3.25 GPA may earn up to $2,000 per semester. Students with less than full time enrollment are also eligible for an award up to $1,875 per semester depending on their enrollment level. Students with a 2.0 – 2.49 GPA may receive a DeVry University Grant.

Enrollment Status

To be eligible for the DeVry University Scholarship/Grant, you must be enrolled in an associate or bachelor’s degree program at DeVry University. Qualifying new undergraduate degree-seeking students enrolling in at least 6 credit hours per semester at DeVry University are eligible – including international students studying on an F1 visa.

The scholarship may be earned by enrolled students who progress from the DeVry University Grant to higher award levels associated with higher CGPA. Any other scholarship previously awarded through DeVry University will be considered when evaluating eligibility.

You must have applied and satisfied all scholarship criteria by Monday, May 2, 2016 (or earlier if total allocation is reached prior to this date) to be awarded for the May 2016 session.

Grade Point Average

You must enroll with an incoming GPA of 2.0 to be eligible as a new student, and to maintain scholarship/grant eligibility you must retain a minimum CGPA of 2.0. If your CPGA is found to fall below 2.0 at your annual review, you will lose your scholarship award for the year. However, with a CPGA of at least 2.0, you may still qualify for the DeVry University Grant.

You can earn your DeVry University Scholarship/Grant award back again the following year with a qualifying CPGA of at least 2.0 when the annual review is conducted. Your performance and your persistence can pay off at DeVry.

Readmit Students

If you are readmitted to DeVry after missing six or more consecutive sessions, you may be eligible for the DeVry University Scholarship if:

  • You have a DeVry CGPA of 2.5 or above at time of admission
  • You are not a previous award recipient of another DeVry scholarship. Readmit students who were previous recipients of other scholarship awards will be evaluated according to the guidelines and restrictions of their previous scholarships, and are not eligible for this DeVry University award.
  • You have not reached the lifetime cap for the DeVry University award amount
     
Annual Review Cycles

The award amount may move up or down through the tiers according to student GPA, with reviews conducted annually in two cycles taking place in July (Cycle 1) and May (Cycle 2). To retain ongoing scholarship/grant eligibility, students must remain enrolled in at least 6 credit hours per semester, maintain a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA (CPGA) and take no longer than one semester off. The student’s GPA at time of review determines the next year’s scholarship/grant award amounts.

Review cycle is determined by enrollment date.
