Please remember the following key points when submitting your qualified students:
♦   Only enter students into the common logon submission portal when they have officially met ALL of the scholarship criteria.
♦   Calculate the students core GPA on only the 16 core classes.
♦   If a student has taken more credits than minimally required in a particular core subject area, you should choose the BEST grades to qualify them for this scholarship.
♦   In Part I, if a student elects to take an AP or IB exam in a particular subject area in lieu of retaking or taking an additional course to receive a better grade, then the original grade (C or below) is still calculated in the core GPA. Please wait to certify these students until after the scores are received. For minimum AP scores, see
Table 1; for IB exams, students must score a 4 or better.
♦   When a student has successfully completed high school course work while in middle school or tested out of a particular core course, then that student’s core GPA would be calculated on less than 16 core classes.
