The above conditions are verified each trimester at census date. If a scholarship recipient fails to successfully meet these conditions, it is at the discretion of the Scholarship Selection Committee to withhold the trimester installment or terminate the scholarship.

The scholarship recipient may take leave of absence in accordance with University policy. Scholarship benefits are suspended for the period of leave of absence.

The scholarship recipient must not defer for more than one trimester. Payments will be suspended for the trimester that the student defers, however, will resume once the student returns to full-time study.
