I actually have a question regarding the official final transcript.Do schools rescind their scholarship offer because of the bad grades from applicant's last semester? If it is true, how bad it should be and does it apply to my situation?
I am an international student who goes to a foreign institution. In my last semester(after I submitted my application), I failed a class and got an NP(non-pass). It was an one-credit volunteer class, and it will not change my numerical GPA in any way , and it was the only class that I took in that semester. I was not worried because I thought that would not be important, but one of my professor told me that NP will be regarded as an F in the US, and since I failed only one class I took in my last semester, it can be problematic.
I heard that bad grades in last semester can be a basis for schools to rescind their offer. I already was offered money from some schools, and I don't want this to have an impact on my cycle in a negative way! Do you think this can be a problem? Any input from you would be extremely helpful to me.
Thanks in advance!
Also curious about this topic. If a GPA falls from like a 3.75 to a 3.66. Would T14s rescind scholarships?
That's a pretty large change from one semester of grades, so again I would reach out to the schools and be proactive with them.
