DBU Scholarships


Maintaining Your Scholarship

Living on campus allows students to be fully engaged in the DBU experience. On-campus residency is required for all DBU Scholarships listed below except Transfer Commuter.

Students must maintain the overall GPA listed below to remain on scholarship at Dallas Baptist University. The student’s overall DBU GPA is reviewed at the end of each semester to determine scholarship standing. Review will take place at the end of every academic year once final grades have been posted in May. Status notifications will be sent to students’ DBU email addresses. 

Students who do not meet established scholarship renewal criteria can complete the DBU Scholarship
Appeal Form before or during the semester that the student is requesting the reinstatement of their scholarships. Students will receive a decision via email approximately two weeks after the committee review takes place, however, during the start of the semester, processing time may be delayed. For questions concerning the appeal criteria and requirements, email the Office of Financial Aid at finaidscholarships@dbu.edu or call 214-333-5363.
