If you receive a need-based grant in the fall semester, it will be renewed for the spring semester provided you are registered as a full-time student. The award is based on full-time enrollment and may be pro-rated if you do not take 11 or more credits. If you start your enrollment in a degree program in the spring semester, the award will not be automatically renewed for the next semester. You will be required to reapply each fall for new funding. Because funding is awarded on a first come, first served basis and because funding is limited, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a need-based grant from one year to the next.
