About the Scholarship


  • What if I enroll as a full-time student then drop some classes?

    You must earn a total of 36 credits by the end of spring term. If 12 credits are not completed during a term, the remaining credits must be made up before the end of spring term. For example, if you register for 12 credits during winter term, but drop a class and only complete nine credits, you would need to take 15 credits during spring term to make up those three credits in order to have a total of 36 credits by the end of the academic year

  • Will I still be eligible for the program if I take some Chemeketa classes before fall term?

    The Chemeketa Scholars scholarship begins the fall term immediately following high school graduation. Enrolling in courses at Chemeketa prior to fall term will not affect your Chemeketa Scholars eligibility. You will be responsible for paying tuition, fees, etc. for classes taken prior to fall term
