Hardship and other good cause may be determined by the Board based upon documented circumstances.

Such situations include, but are not limited to, the following:

  (1) a severe illness or other debilitating condition that may affect the recipient's ability to make satisfactory academic progress in the baccalaureate or educator certification program;

  (2) responsibility for the care of a temporarily disabled dependent that may affect the recipient's ability to make satisfactory academic progress in the baccalaureate or educator certification program; or

  (3) similar circumstances preventing the recipient from completing the five-year teaching obligation within six years after the date the person began to fulfill the teaching obligation.
