Graduation Requirement Change

How does the new graduation requirement opting out of PE courses affect my enrollment and eligibility for my merit scholarship?

If you opt out of the new graduation requirements we will be able to count your PE credits for financial aid purposes since they will then be required for graduation.  HOWEVER, if you choose the new graduation requirement, your enrollment status will be 3/4 which may impact your eligibility for your merit scholarships, which requires full time (12+ credits) enrollment.
