OC Scholars - Maintaining Eligibility

Students accepted as Scholars must meet the following criteria in order to maintain the scholarship for the second year:

  • Enroll full-time (12-18 credits) credits each term*
  • Successfully complete at least 36 credits each year
  • Maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or better in Oregon Coast classes
  • Maintain continued enrollment in consecutive academic years*

GPA’s for continuing students will be calculated annually following Spring term to determine eligibility for the second year of the Scholars program. The minimum 3.25 GPA will be strictly adhered to and there will be no appeal process for students who originally qualify, but whose GPA later drops below the 3.25 threshold.

* For example, students must be enrolled for Fall, Winter and Spring terms and return the following Fall term for the full academic year.
