Section 597.230  Student Enrollment and Institutions' Obligations

 

a)         An approved institution may accept a student into its nursing education program based on its own admission requirements, standards and policies.

 

b)         The Department shall disburse available scholarship funds for tuition and fees to the approved institution directly for the payment of tuition and other necessary fees or for credit against the student's obligation for tuition and fees.  If the Department disburses scholarship funds directly to an approved institution, the approved institution shall be contractually obligated to provide facilities and instruction to the student on the same terms as to other students. (Section 9(a) of the Law)

 

c)         An approved institution shall provide written notice to the Department if any scholarship recipient who is enrolled in the approved institution ceases to be a student in good standing.  The notice shall be sent to the Department within ten business days after the institution determines that the student ceases to be in good standing.  After the notification is received, the Department will terminate the Grant Agreement and the recipient shall repay all previously awarded scholarship funds (see Section 597.310).

 

d)         A student who receives a renewal scholarship shall either re-enroll in the approved institution that the student attended during the preceding academic year or enroll in another approved institution.  The approved institution accepting the student for enrollment or re-enrollment shall notify the Department regarding the acceptance.  The notice will be sent to the Department within ten business days after the student's acceptance.

 

e)         Recipients shall furnish to the Department a copy of their class schedule for each quarter, trimester or semester while attending nursing school.
