SECTION 610:25-33-3. General Provisions  


Latest version.
  • (a)   Each regional university will receive an annual allocation to support scholarships to be awarded to students who meet the eligibility criteria in 610:25-33-4, and continuing students who meet the criteria in 610:25-33-5. The university may establish additional eligibility criteria. The scholarship award may be used only at the university making the award; it is not portable.
    (b)   Funding for the awards shall be made in a special allocation of state appropriated monies to the regional universities. The regional universities shall make tuition waiver scholarships available to each student. The allocation, tuition waiver, and any other state or federal financial aid for which the student qualifies shall comprise a scholarship amount not to exceed the costs of tuition and fees, room and board, and books and supplies required for courses.
    (c)   Provisions contained in this section are consistent with 70 O.S. 1991, Section 2403, as amended, and federal legislation affecting disabled persons. If a person identifies himself or herself as a student with a disability and requests consideration for a scholarship under the Regional University Baccalaureate Scholarship Program by means other than standard testing procedures, the State Regents shall permit the student to be examined under the special testing arrangements provided by either ACT or The College Board provided that he or she meets the qualifications specified by ACT and The College Board, respectively, to be examined. Performance requirements for participation in the Regional University Baccalaureate Scholarship Program remain the same as for other students. Students taking such tests and receiving Regional University Baccalaureate Scholarship awards will be expected to meet the same retention standards as other students. Special provisions may be considered in determining full-time enrollment for students in this category.
