- Participate in two (2) hours/week of service on campus, weeks 2-10 of each term, during year one in the program.
Should the UCC Scholar fail to meet the GPA. or credit requirement, one opportunity to appeal continuing participation in the program is allowed. If the appeal is approved, the UCC Scholar is considered to be on program probation. As a probationary student, the UCC Scholar has specific conditions that must be met, along with the regular requirements of the program in order to remain in the program. Successful completion of the probation term returns the UCC Scholar to regular status in the program. Failure to complete the probation term removes the UCC Scholar from the program.
