What if I don’t meet DSF’s high school GPA requirement at my college?
If you do not meet the DSF’s high school GPA requirement at your intended college, you can submit a High School GPA Appeal (see appeal section below). Please contact the DSF Scholarship Team for details at denverscholarship.org/contactus

DSF expects students to meet all requirements detailed in the DSF Scholarship Policy. However, we understand that sometimes students face situations that are beyond their control and need some flexibility in order to deal with those situations. Appeals to request exceptions to the scholarship policy will only be considered in cases of truly exceptional personal or family circumstances.
DSF will review and consider appeals based on the following extenuating circumstances:
- You did not meet DSF’s high school GPA requirement at your intended college but can demonstrate college readiness by qualifying for a high school GPA exception.
- Death in your immediate family
- Medical illness or injury (personal/immediate family)
- Other special circumstances beyond the student’s control
Time management issues, poor decision-making, forgetting about a deadline, or human error are not sufficient grounds for an appeal.
Appeals will NOT be considered for the following situations:
- Denver Public Schools (DPS) Enrollment
- DPS Graduation
- High School GPA Below 2.0
- College Academic Requirements
- Eligible Colleges
- Scholarship Amount
- Length of Eligibility
- Graduate School
You must continue to meet any remaining DSF requirements while your appeal is being reviewed. If your appeal is approved and a requirement is not met, you may lose your scholarship for the entire academic year.
If you believe that your situation may fall within the types of extenuating circumstances described above, contact a member of the DSF Scholarship team to discuss the situation which caused you to miss a DSF deadline or requirement.
You are encouraged to work with your Future Center Advisor, Campus Contact, or other student support professional on campus for help with contacting DSF.
After DSF staff has considered your situation, we will inform you if you should submit an appeal for committee review. If the staff member determines that the situation should be reviewed by the committee, a DSF appeal form and instructions will be provided to the student and/or advisor.
DSF policy appeals will now be reviewed on a rolling basis. If you are appealing to qualify for a scholarship payment, your appeal must be submitted no later than 30 days before the end of the term during which you wish to be paid.
