No PTS Tuition Grant, Housing Grant, or Work-Support funds will be available to any student who does not meet satisfactory academic progress.
Transcripts will be reviewed at the end of each academic year. Students must meet a grade point average and pace requirement. All students must earn a minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA. Pace is determined by enrollment status; full-time aid-recipients cannot earn less than 18 credits and half-time recipients must complete15 credits. Failure to meet both standards means that the student will not receive need-based financial aid for the following academic year. After one year, financial aid may be awarded again if the cumulative GPA has been raised to 2.5 and the credit-requirement have been completed (assuming the student has reapplied and qualified).
Should a student fail a course(s) or withdraw, there will be no financial aid for this course(s) when repeated, or for electives that may be substituted as repeat credits. Should a student withdraw after the official add/drop period, financial aid for this course will be revoked and the student is responsible for any tuition charges. Dropping below full-time enrollment status can jeopardize current and future aid. For example, if a student drops below full-time status during Term I, his/her aid is revoked and awarded to the next person on the Wait list. As aid may not be available in the following terms, aid cannot be reinstated for Term II or III.
Financial aid will be available to the student for the specified length of the degree program chosen. Financial aid will not be provided to any student beyond the minimum credits required for graduation.
