A+ How Much Can I Receive?

How much can I receive?

The scholarship will reimburse, within the limits described in the following paragraph, the unpaid balance of your tuition and general fees after all available, non-loan federal financial assistance, such as the federal Pell grant, has been applied to your account. This may result in a zero award if your Pell grant is sufficient to cover all tuition and general fee charges.General fees are fees that are charged to all students and do not include fees specific to an individual program or group of students.

 The tuition amount eligible for reimbursement is capped at the published standard per credit hour tuition rate charged by State Technical College of Missouri. For the 2016-17 academic year, the maximum rate is $159.75 per credit hour or $4.30 per clock-hour.

The amount reimbursed may be reduced if there are insufficient state appropriations.  The following factors may also affect the amount you are eligible to receive:

  • Reimbursement will be made for completed coursework, including remedial coursework, for which a standard grade was assigned and that is required by your school for the completion of the degree or certificate.
  • Coursework that is part of a higher level certificate or degree program taken after receipt of a certificate will be reimbursed if it is related to the original certificate.
  • The amount of reimbursement paid for coursework for which a standard grade was not assigned (dropped coursework), including coursework from which you officially or unofficially withdrew, will not be reimbursed.
  • Repeat coursework, which includes courses for which you have already received a grade (including a failing grade), will not be reimbursed.
