WCU Scholarship Criteria

West Chester University institutional aid including the Golden Ram Award and Academic Excellence Scholarship are based on students continued full-time enrollment and good academic standing. Good academic standing is defined by a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or greater as well as the completion of 24 credits per academic year. Please also keep in mind that students receiving the Golden Ram Award are also required to complete a FAFSA by February 1st each year as well as the verification process by June 1st, if they are selected. Changes in the FAFSA or financial aid award, that impact eligibility, could also result in the repackaging of the Golden Ram Award as this is a need-based fund.
