How Do I Keep The Award?

PathwayOregon awards are renewed annually for up to 12 terms of undergraduate study over five years (excluding summer terms). For renewal, recipients must

  • Remain eligible for the Federal Pell Grant
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year by March 1 (Recommended by January 31)
  • Maintain full-time student status by enrolling in 12 or more credits each term

In some instances it may be appropriate to drop a course during the term.  If in doing so your credit total decreases below 12 credits, your eligibility for aid may be affected.  Before reducing credits, meet with a PathwayOregon advisor about potential financial aid implications. 

Financial Aid Eligibility

To be eligible for financial aid, including PathwayOregon, you must make satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward your degree at the UO. Satisfactory academic progress is reviewed annually at the end of spring term and is met by:

  • Maintaining a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) for undergraduate students
  • Maintaining an aggregate 67 percent pace of completion
