Reach the Peak

REACH THE PEAK

 A list has been generated of students who could be eligible. Advisors should only be reaching out to students who have a date in the ‘date updated column’. Those  who have a date have been pre-approved to be awarded Reach the Peak as long as the money is available.

 

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS – the student:

  1. Must be a Returning Inactive EOU student: Returning Inactive EOU student is defined as any previously matriculated student who has fallen out of continuous enrollment that has become inactive. Please see page 31 of 2016-2017 catalog for definitions.
  2. Must have a Grad App on file: A Grad App is the only way that a student can come back and be allowed to finish under their originally admitted catalog. All originally evaluated transfer work will be honored as is, and any exceptions and/or petitions will be honored under the original date of approval. If the original degree (major/concentration/minor) is no longer available at EOU, the Registrar’s Office will work with program faculty to plan a path forward allowing the student the opportunity to complete the degree. Please see page 31 of 2016-2017 catalog for definitions.
  3. Must be within 24 credits of completing the degree that is listed on the Grad App
  4. Must have or be able to obtain a EOU & Overall GPA of 2.00 with classes left to complete
  5. Must not have received Reach the Peak previously
  6. Must be able to complete within 1 years’ time
  7. Courses chosen by the student must lead to completion
  8. No changes of majors/minors that lead to new requirements or addition of credits
  9. Students will be have to show satisfactory progress each term to receive the next terms award.

  3. Submit the Reach the Peak (RTP) Application to scholarships@eou.edu
  4. Registrar’s office will verify what is on the application
  5. Fin Aid will notify student/adviser of award or outcome

If you think you have a student who is RTP but not on the list:

  1. Have them submit a Returning Student application: https://www.eou.edu/registrar/returning-student-application-page/

Reach the Peak Application

 

EXCEPTIONS:

The Dean of Innovation & Outreach will be monitoring this award and exceptions in regards to the Reach the Peak (RTP) program.

If you have a student that you believe would benefit from Reach the Peak:

  1. Have them submit a Returning Student application: https://www.eou.edu/registrar/returning-student-application-page/
  2. Submit the Reach the Peak Application to scholarships@eou.edu, note somewhere that this would be a special exception.
  3. Registrar’s office will verify what is on the application
  4. Fin Aid will notify student/adviser of award or outcome

An example of special exception would be they are a senior, they are out of Fin Aid and only have 10 credits left to graduate.

Changing the students degree or major from the original grad app will void the RTP application and remove them from the RTP pool.

Please do not skip the Registrar’s office in this process as it will create a longer response time on the students RTP application.
