Retention Criteria for Biology and Math STEM Programs

Student Scholarship Retention Criteria

Students will retain their scholarships provided they meet the following criteria in each academic semester.

  1. Academic Performance. Scholars must maintain an overall and major cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Any scholar whose GPA falls below a 3.0 will be placed on project probation, and provided with additional mentoring, supplemental academic coaching, and course-specific tutoring. A scholar on probation must show academic progress. If they do not show improvement after two semesters on probation, they will be removed from the UP project. If a scholar is released from the project, LWC will select a replacement as described below.
  2. Academic Progress. Scholars must remain on track to graduate in four years, successfully complete required coursework, and actively participate in the UP project activities. Scan the QR code, this will take you to the initial application.
