Rule 24:40:13:08 Payment of benefits to students participating in the scholarship program.
of benefits to students participating in the scholarship program. Upon a
student's admission to the scholarship program, the executive director shall
make scholarship payments for the benefit of the student who complies with
course load requirements for two consecutive semesters without regard to the
student's grade point average. Thereafter, payments may only be made if the
student has met the credit hour threshold and persistence requirements and if
the student's cumulative grade point average for all coursework completed is at
least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. The executive director shall make the payments each
semester for each student whose compliance with credit hour threshold,
persistence, and grade point requirements has been verified by the
participating institution that enrolls the student as a regular student. No
payment may be made on behalf of any student who fails to comply with credit
hour threshold, persistence, and cumulative grade point requirements or whose
compliance has not been verified by the participating institution that enrolls
the student as a regular student.
