Post-Secondary Check Disbursement
Scholarship checks are issued to the school or institution on behalf of the student.  Any scholarship funds remaining after tuition, books, and fees have been paid will be issued to the student from the school for associated living and educational costs while attending school.

Transcripts

Funding for subsequent terms will not be issued until student submits an unofficial transcript showing successful completion of previous term’s course work, and a class schedule (to include credit hours) for the following term.  Upon receipt of completed application a check will be issued to the school.

Probation

By accepting scholarship funding the student agrees to successfully complete all courses/vocational/certificate program requirements for which funding is provided.   Successful completion is defined by maintaining a cumulative and current GPA of 2.0 for undergraduate students, a cumulative and current GPA of 3.0 for graduate students, or a passing grade as define by the vocational or technical program.  Students must also maintain the level of credits or courses enrolled for at the beginning of the funding period.  Failure to meet this obligation will place the recipient’s scholarship on hold for the next funding period. If these terms are not met while on the probationary period, funding for the next period will not be granted until terms have been met.
