Obama Scholars acknowledge the following program goals:
As an Obama Scholar, I understand this program is designed to support my collegiate success at Arizona State University. I agree to the following:
I will maintain satisfactory academic progress as described by Student Financial Assistance. Read about satisfactory academic progress: students.asu.edu/policies/sap.
I will maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.50 by the end of the spring semester forward.
I understand the President Barack Obama Scholars Program is awarded for a maximum of eight (8) consecutive semesters. I will complete the appropriate number of credit hours each semester required to graduate in four (4) years.
I will maintain enrollment as a full-time student (minimum of 12 credits per semester).
I will meet with my academic advisor a minimum of once per semester and enroll in courses required for my major.
I will meet with my Obama Scholar First-Year Success (FYS) Coach a minimum of once per month (September through November and January through April).
I will complete and submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by the posted deadline each year.
To be considered for additional scholarships I will complete and submit the ASU General Scholarship Application by the posted deadline each year.
I understand that if I were to fall below university expectations or fall off-track, my coach will be notified in order to develop a plan of action with me.
