Enrollment:

Students are required to maintain the enrollment status indicated in the chart each semester. Failure to complete the indicated enrollment status will result in the termination of future disbursements of the scholarship.

Service Hours:

Students whose scholarships have service hour requirements should complete all their hours.  By mid-semester they should have completed 37.5 hours.  In the event the student does not complete all 75 required hours, the scholarship will be terminated for future semesters.

Incoming students will receive their placement information through their AP email account prior to the start of the fall semester.  This email will provide the contact information for the department supervisor to which they have been assigned and will prompt the student to complete the scholarship confirmation form. Students should report to their assigned work areas on the first day of classes. An unsatisfactory work evaluation may result in cancellation of the scholarship(s).

Continuing students will remain in the departments they were originally placed in throughout the duration of their scholarship.  A student may request to transfer to another department at the end of the semester if he or she is dissatisfied with the current placement.  Requests are made online. Efforts will be made to allow transfer to the requested department; however, students may be assigned to any department needing assistance.

Exemptions for scholarship service hours can be made if extenuating circumstances exist. You may request a review for exemption by completing the Scholarship Service Hour Exemption Form.

Appeals:

Normally a student is not able to appeal the loss of one of the above scholarships until after one semester/term. If extenuating circumstances exist, an appeal may be submitted to the Office of Student Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs before the lapse of one semester/term. The appeal form is located here.
