Students will not need to take out loans or apply other scholarship dollars toward their tuition and mandatory fees beyond what they receive in Pell and TIP funding.
Once enrolled at a participating community college, students must complete at least 24 credit hours per year that meet Pell-eligibility, satisfactory academic progress, and satisfactory academic standing.
