SCHOLARSHIP CRITERIA

Students are defined as full-time if they are registered for 12 credit hours or more on a semester system or 10 credit hours or more on a quarter system. Part-time will be anything below that amount. Full/part-time status will be reviewed closely by the Executive Director and may be researched through the school if a dispute arises.

Students that are funded as full-time in the fall then drop to part-time mid-semester/quarter due to failing grades, incompletes, or withdrawals, will be placed on probation. Their funding will continue that school year if they prove that they will be attending the spring/quarter as a full-time student. Students will be notified of their probationary status by mail. Students who repeat this action a second time will not receive their second semester/quarter or third quarter funding and will not be eligible to apply for funding from TAF the next school year.

Students who receive funds in the spring and summer semester can also receive a probationary mark. If that student reapplies for funds in the next fall semester and it is noted on their transcript that they dropped to part-time the previous spring semester due to failing grades, incompletes or withdrawals, he/she will receive a probationary mark for that school year. Students in this category will be notified of their probationary status by mail. Students who repeat this action a second time will not receive their second semester/quarter or third quarter funding and will not be eligible to apply for funding from TAF the next school year.

Students that willingly drop from a full-time status in the fall to a part-time status in the spring for reasons other than grades will not receive the second half of their award.
