The ABA policy states, "A law school shall publicly disclose on its website, in the form designated by the Council, its conditional scholarship retention data. A law school shall also distribute this data to all applicants being offered conditional scholarships at the time the scholarship offer is extended." It is the practice of the School of Law to communicate this information in a letter to applicants at the time they apply for a scholarship.
All UST Law merit scholarships are offered on a three-year basis, meaning that students retain the scholarship provided they remain in good academic standing (GPA of 2.0 or better.) For more information on the UST Law Scholarship policy, refer to Section II-6 of the policy manual.
In 2011, 99% of our students retained their scholarships. The following table illustrates our scholarship retention in recent years.
