         tuition and bookstore bills prior to graduation.

     2.  Has financial need.  Financial need will be determined on the basis as to whether the student is eligible
         for federal aid irregardless of the student being on suspension, has used their max Pell or loss of
         eligibility status for federal financial aid due to the student having a Bachelor's Degree.  (The student
         has to have applied for Pell for the current school year or provide tax documents for the previous year).

         Students will be considered for graduation assistance and may be granted assistance if their Expected

         received a higher degree in the previous year.)
