To remain on scholarship, Emerging Leaders must maintain a 2.500 cumulative GPA. Determinations are made at the end of the spring term.
Emerging Leaders must enroll full-time (at least 12 credit hours) during the fall and spring terms. These hours must be officially registered by the 6th day of classes each semester.
In addition, Emerging Leaders must successfully complete 24 credit hours each academic year (fall and spring terms), including the successful completion of at least 9 graded hours each term. Repeated courses will only count once.
If the recipient withdraws from school or fails to register for consecutive semesters, the scholarship will be discontinued.
