How does the NYCF determine eligibility?
The New York Department of Education (NYDE) provides information regarding eligibility to grant and to remove a student from the program. These criteria consist of a student’s past actions which include:
completed a required program of study
received a grade of B+ or below in their last course
received an academic penalty
received a failing grade (i.e. F or less in their last class)
received an exclusion from the program (i.e. suspension or leave of absence)
The NYCF determines eligibility based on the following three factors:
the individual’s past grade point averages (GPA) during their last 30 days of school attendance
the individual’s academic progress as determined through a combination of tests/graded/paper/courses/etc., including the individual’s academic progress from the prior 12 months.
the individual’s previous educational level and experience; as determined after enrollment
Each year NYDE evaluates all students who are eligible and applies the following evaluation criteria to the NYCF applicant list based on their most recent course(s) of study:
GPA: The student’s total average is 5.0+/50 for first and second year courses, and 4.0+/25 for third through college level courses (three courses must be in the same program, or in the same area).
