Students selected as BCCC ET Scholars must agree in writing to participate in all project activities and maintain a minimum 2.75 overall GPA, as well as a 2.75 in all mathematics/ engineering/technology courses.
A student whose GPA falls below 2.75 in any one semester or does not participate in required activities three times in any one semester will be placed on probation for the following semester. The probationary scholar will be required to attend all scholar activities and to meet monthly with a faculty mentor. At the end of the semester, if the GPA continues to be less than 2.75, the student will be removed from scholarship status. Each scholarship award may be continued for up to two years, assuming the student continues to meet eligibility requirements.
High school prospects who do not meet the 2.75 GPA requirements will be encouraged to enroll in BCCC’s accelerated developmental math review. This approach provides a review of high school math in advance of taking BCCC’s Accuplacer math placement test, the results of which could be used instead of the 2.75 GPA requirements.
