Losing A+ Program Eligibility

Losing A+ Program Eligibility

Student eligibility for A+ funding will expire at the earliest of the following:

  • 48 months after high school graduation.
  • Receipt of an Associate's Degree.
  • When a student completes 105% of the credit hours required for his or her certificate or degree program.
  • The 105% calculation will include: All hours completed at any institution, including remedial coursework and all hours accepted as transfer credits.
  • The 105% calculation will not include: Credit hours earned before high school graduation.
  • A+ funding will cover 100% of the courses required of a certificate or associate’s degree program that a student chooses, and possibly one additional course. However, if the student is required to take remedial math, English and/or reading courses then he or she may use the entire A+ funding before completion of the certificate or degree program. 
  • 105% Example: If an Associate's Degree requires 62 credit hours then 105% = 65 credit hours. (Therefore, once the student completes 65 hours, then they will no longer be eligible for A+ funding.)
