A missed Credit Hour Waiver
would be if a student has missed one of the below credit thresholds. A waiver pauses the scholarship until the student reaches the threshold:
- 30 Credits prior to 3rd Semester
- 60 Credits prior to 5th Semester
- 90 Credits prior to 7th Semester
A Persistence Waiver
is granted when a student is not continuously enrolled or misses a semester due to an internship, military obligation, or medical hardship, etc.
exemptions may be granted as allowed under the SDCL authority. The Board of Regents does not have the authority to grant GPA exemptions.
