RULE §22.229Satisfactory Academic Progress

(a) To qualify for a continuation or renewal award after the academic year in which a person receives an initial award, each recipient of the TEXAS Grant shall meet the academic progress requirements as indicated by the financial aid office of his or her institution.

(b) To receive a subsequent award after he or she receives a continuation award:

  (1) a recipient who was awarded an initial year TEXAS grant prior to September 1, 2005, shall, unless granted a hardship postponement in accordance with §22.231 of this title (relating to Hardship Provisions):

    (A) complete at least 75 percent of the hours attempted in his or her most recent academic year, as determined by institutional policies; and

    (B) maintain an overall grade point average of at least 2.5 on a four point scale or its equivalent, for all coursework attempted at public or private or independent institutions of higher education.

  (2) To receive a subsequent award after he or she received a continuation award, a recipient who was awarded an initial year award through the TEXAS Grant Program on or after September 1, 2005 shall, unless granted a hardship postponement in accordance with §22.231 of this title:

    (A) complete at least 24 semester credit hours in his or her most recent academic year; and,

    (B) maintain an overall grade point average of at least 2.5 on a four point scale or its equivalent, for all coursework attempted at an institution or private or independent institution.

    (C) A first-time entering freshman student enrolling in a participating institution for the second regular term or semester in a given academic year meets the semester-credit-hour requirement outlined in subparagraph (A) of this paragraph for continuing in the program if he or she completes at least 12 semester credit hours or its equivalent during that term or semester.

(c) A grant recipient who is below program grade point average requirements as of the end of a spring term may appeal his/her grade point average calculation if he/she has taken courses previously at one or more different institutions. In the case of such an appeal, the current institution (if presented with transcripts from the previous institutions), shall calculate an overall grade point average counting all classes and grade points previously earned. If the resulting grade point average exceeds the program's academic progress requirement, an otherwise eligible student may receive an award in the following fall term.
