Scholarship Retention Data

Students matriculating in # entering with conditional scholarships # whose conditional scholarships have since been reduced or eliminated
2021 65 25
2020 100 48
2019 91 41*

*Please note, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we waived the terms of our conditional scholarships for the Fall 2020 semester. These numbers reflect the conditional scholarships that were reduced or eliminated for the Spring semester of 2021.

This information applies to all conditional scholarships offered by Quinnipiac Law. Prior to Fall 2022 admissions, conditional scholarship renewals were based on ranking in the top 50% of the class. For students starting in Fall 2022, the renewal requirements have been changed to a 2.5 GPA. We believe this new requirement should allow more students the opportunity to retain their scholarship awards.

As defined by the American Bar Association (ABA), a conditional scholarship is any financial aid award, the retention of which is dependent upon the student maintaining a minimum grade point average or class standing, other than that ordinarily required to remain in good academic standing.

Outside Scholarships

The Office of Financial Aid receives notification of various scholarships that are awarded by organizations other than the School of Law. These organizations have their own application and selection criteria for awarding private funds. Scholarships vary in amount and criteria and students are responsible for all application, renewal and disbursement paperwork. Please contact the office for more information.
