Supplemental Questions
  1. This application is for students requesting a change to a scholarship status administered by the Office of Undergraduate Scholarships (see list below). Appeals are reviewed by the University Scholarship Appeals Committee and decisions are final and are not subject to further appeal.

    Students are able to update their appeal if a new mitigating circumstance is presented (i.e. more documentation can be presented, further documentation is provided to explain your extenuating circumstance, etc.). Students must notify the Office of Undergraduate Scholarships when submitting additional documentation to an existing appeal for further review. An appeal will not be reviewed automatically once an initial decision has been rendered. Notification of additional documentation or changes to the appeal must be emailed to scholars@usm.edu by the stated deadlines requesting additional review of the appeal. Please include your student ID number.

    Students can appeal for the following scholarships: freshman/transfer academic scholarships, freshman/transfer designation-based scholarships, and admissions-based scholarships received by continuing students at Southern Miss.

    I agree to the following conditions:

    Applicants must be admitted to Southern Miss.

    Current students must be enrolled in the amount of hours outlined by their scholarship stipulation agreement.

    The student seeking the appeal must be the individual submitting the appeal. Parents and/or advisors should not complete this form on behalf of their student.

    A current Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required for all undergraduate scholarships. The University Scholarship Appeals Committee will review a student's FAFSA completion status and expected family contribution (EFC) for all appeals submitted.

    Students may not appeal for Luckyday Citizenship Foundation Scholarship, the Honors College Discovery Scholarship, and the Honors College Presidential Scholarship. Recipients for these scholarships are determined through a competitive review process, and decisions made during the competitive review process are final.

    Before submitting this appeal, please ensure all details and documentation are submitted at one time.

    Decisions will be viewable in the GO System and more details regarding the final decision will be emailed to the student's USM email address.
