The Baylor scholarship section lists specific renewal criteria for their NMF award but not for Regents scholarship recipients. What if you are NMF but also qualify for the Regents based on test scores as well? If NMF qualify for a "full tuition scholarship" that would be $39,610 correct? So it would be preferable to accept the standard Regents gold award which are more that full tuition? Also would the GPA requirement to renew the Regents for non NMF Regents be lower?
"Regents' Gold Scholarship
Baylor provides a full tuition academic scholarship to National Merit Finalists who select Baylor as their first-choice college. The Regents' Gold Scholarship is augmented by the recipients' SAT or ACT score.
SAT/ACT Total Award Per Year
1520+/34+ $174,440 $43,610
1450+/32+ $170,440 $42,610
1390+/30+ $166,440 $41,610
For National Merit Finalists only. Renewal is contingent upon maintaining a Baylor cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher."
Tuition - $39,610 + Fees $4,430 = $44,040
