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 every spring semester to determine scholarship standing. A 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. 

Note: Due to Covid-19 the Spring 2020, Spring 2021 and Spring 2022 reviews will be waived and the next review will occur at the end of Spring 2023.
