Scholarship Retention Information
To maintain scholarships, students must remain in good standing under the academic rules as well as the Honor Code. It is important to note that maintenance of good academic standing is a prerequisite for continuation at the law school and for graduation — not just for scholarship retention.
To maintain good standing under the academic rules, students must:
- Earn a semester grade point average of at least 2.0 at the end of each semester, except for the first semester of the first year;
- Earn a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 at the end of each semester, except for the first semester of the first year.
- In the first semester of the first year, earn grades below C in no more than 9 credits.
Additionally, because Dickinson Law places a high value on academic integrity, if you are found to have violated the Honor Code, you may be subject to a revocation of your scholarship among other sanctions.
