*SAP = Satisfactory Academic Progress: Requires that students earn passing grades in a minimum of 67% of the credit hours they take. Grades of W, I, N, NC or repeated classes are not "earned."

**Formula to determine the maximum number of semesters of scholarship payment:

Semesters of Eligibility: 124 - transfer hours = X ÷ 15 = # of semesters (round up)

Example: 124 - 67 transfer hours = 57 ÷ 15 = 3.8 semesters (rounded up to 4 semesters)
