Maintaining Benefits for the A+ Scholarship

You have worked hard in high school to earn your A+ eligibility. To maintain your benefits, you must:

  • Enroll in degree-related credit courses each semester (at least 12 credit hours in the fall and the spring semesters; six credit hours in the summer semester).
  • Maintain at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average (GPA).
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each academic year.
  • Maintain a completion rate of at least 67.00 percent.
  • Complete the full-time hours each term in which you are enrolled.

If you have difficulty meeting the A+ program guidelines, please ask for help! Contact your campus counseling/advising center to discuss the many services we offer to help you succeed.

If you lose your A+ benefits, you can get them back. This is what you will have to do:

  • Enroll in a subsequent term and enroll in the number of credit hours (3, 6, 9, or 12 credit hours) needed to achieve a GPA that will restore your A+ benefits.
  • Raise your GPA to the required cumulative 2.5 GPA or higher.
  • Pay the full cost of your tuition and all fees during the semester(s) of ineligibility.
  • Raise your completion rate to the required 67.00 percent, or higher.
  • If you did not complete full-time hours, you must successfully make up those hours successfully in a subsequent term before you again become eligible for A+ benefits.
