Example 3: Maria is registered for 16 applicable hours. She has been awarded the Presidential academic scholarship, a Rotary scholarship and TN Hope Lottery. The only award that will be considered gift aid in the TN Reconnect calculation is the TN Hope Lottery. Therefore, Maria will have an overage which may be refunded to her or applied toward other university charges, such as housing and meals.

Example 5: Jackson is registered for 12 applicable hours. He has been awarded a Pell Grant and plans to enroll at the APSU Ft. Campbell campus. If he enrolls Fall I session for 6 credit hours, the TN Reconnect payment can be applied for part-time enrollment. A full-time TN Reconnect payment cannot be made until Fall II census. Because APSU’s tuition and fee costs are greater than the maximum payment amount for TN Reconnect, the overall balance due will be $1,225. Portions of the TN Reconnect payment will be applied during Fall I and Fall II.
