3. Recipients must maintain at least 3.25 cumulative KU GPA, complete 30 KU hours each year and continue to be assessed non-resident tuition rates.
Any student paying non-resident tuition who has been approved for the Jayhawk Generations Scholarship whose tuition status changes to resident because of a residency classification change, fee privileges or special rates will not be eligible for the Jayhawk Generations Scholarship.
