A student accepted as UCC Scholar must agree to the following program participation requirements in order to maintain the tuition waiver:
• Enroll in fall term 2017.
• Enroll for no more than six consecutive terms (summer 2018 is optional).
• Enroll in and maintain a minimum of 12 credits each term. Enrollment in additional credits is allowed, however, any additional credits and all other fees or costs will not be covered by the 12 credit tuition waiver.
• If a course(s) is/are dropped/withdrawn from during the academic term, the tuition cost of the course will be reimbursed to the college.
• Maintain a minimum quarterly G.P.A. of 3.50 while attending UCC as a participant in the UCC Scholars Program.
• Completion of the Associates degree or earning 90 credits before the six consecutive terms are completed will end participation in the program. Earned credit hours include any credits earned prior to acceptance as a UCC Scholar.
• Attend a one day (10am to 3pm) UCC Scholars Boot Camp on September 12, September 13 or September 14.
• Enroll in college success course in fall term 2017 or winter term 2018.
• Meet with an assigned academic advisor a minimum of once per term during the first year as a UCC Scholar.
• Complete a minimum of fifteen (15) UCC approved community/volunteer service hours each year as a UCC Scholar, keeping a record of the hours of service.
• Should the UCC Scholar fail to meet the G.P.A. or credit requirement, one opportunity to appeal continuing participation in the program will be allowed. If the appeal is approved, the UCC Scholar will be considered to be on program probation. As a probationary student, the UCC Scholar will be required to submit academic progress reports once during the term and will be required to utilize the Success Center service for a minimum of one hour each week during the term. The UCC Scholar may also be required to participate in academic support services as determined by the UCC Scholars Task Force. The UCC Scholar will also be required to meet the regular requirements of the program. Successful completion of the probation term will return the UCC Scholar to regular status in the program. Failure to complete the probation term will remove the UCC Scholar from the program.
