- Students who increase their Truman GPA (either to renewal range or to a higher level of renewal percentage) after any term of enrollment, should contact the Financial Aid Office regarding potential change in their renewal status.

- Truman undergraduate scholarships are designed to provide assistance for completion of the initial baccalaureate degree program(s).
