If you are not on track to complete an associate's degree in two years [which means earning 30 credits each academic year), you can catch up on missing credits to become eligible for an Excelsior Scholarship. If you successfully earn additional credits during a term in the academic year that gets you back on track to complete your degree on time, you will be eligible for an Excelsior Scholarship going forward for the remainder of your undergraduate degree program.
If you are a College Discovery student, you are considered to be on-track for degree completion if you complete 24 degree credits each academic year.
If you are a student with a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the program does not require that you earn 30 credits per year to meet the on-time requirement. However, the program does require that you successfully complete all credits attempted each semester to fulfill the requirement for on-time completion.
