The Excelsior Scholarship

I began college many years ago. Can I re-enroll as a first-year student and receive an Excelsior Scholarship?

No. The time clock for completing an associate or baccalaureate degree began from the first semester you began college.  If you have had a break in attendance and are not on track to complete your associate in 4 semesters or a baccalaureate degree in 8 semesters, you are not eligible for an award.

If you began or completed a certificate program and had a break in attendance before pursuing an associate or baccalaureate degree, you are also not eligible to receive an award.

Am I eligible for an award if I changed my major and now need additional time to complete my degree?
