Missouri State Scholarships

A+ Scholarship Program


The A+ Schools Program provides students who have attended an A+ designated high school and met A+ eligibility requirements with a scholarship covering tuition at a public, two-year community college or vocational school in the state of Missouri.

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education established the A+ Schools program in 1993. The key goal of the A+ Schools program is to assure that all students, when they graduate, are well prepared to pursue advanced education, employment or both.

Once the State the Board of Education designates a high school as an A+ institution, then students who have completed the eligibility requirements may attend any Missouri community college or state technical school and receive FREE tuition. Check with your high school counselor for details on your school's A+ opportunities.

Requirements During High School  

1.     Enter into a written agreement with your high school during the last three years prior to high school graduation.
2.     Maintain a record of good citizenship and avoid unlawful use of drugs;
3.     Have at least a 95% attendance record;
4.     Perform 50 hours of unpaid tutoring or mentoring for younger students;
5.     Graduate from high school with a GPA of 2.5 or better on a 4.0 scale.

College Requirements

Once designated as an "Eligible A+ High School Graduate", the following steps should be completed at the college level.
1.     File a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) annually;
2.     Complete an application for admission and submit the $25 application fee;
3.     Submit a Final High School Transcript with the official A+ Seal.
4.     Submit any additional verification documents as requested by the college.
5.     Read, sign, and submit an A+ contract (2014-2015) to Student Financial Services.

A+ students attending in the Fall/Spring must complete the 2013-2014 FAFSA.  Students attending in the Summer must also complete the 2013-2014 FAFSA.

Eligible Programs Of Study
A+ eligible students must enroll in programs of study leading to a certificate or degree.

Admission to Jefferson College does not guarantee acceptance into all programs of study. Program specific admission is required for enrollment in the emergency medical technology, nursing, occupational therapy assistant, physical therapy assisting, veterinary technology programs and the Law Enforcement Academy.

Timeline Eligibility For A+ Students
Currently, A+ eligible students may receive financial incentives for up to 105% of the hours required for the program in which the student is currently enrolled. Students have forty-eight (48) months to use their eligibility beginning with their high school graduation date. Students are no longer eligible for A+ upon completion of an Associate's Degree. Students who complete a Career and Technical Education Certificate may receive A+ financial incentives to complete the Associate Degree in the same program of study only.

Items Covered By A+ Funds
The A+ program will cover tuition and technology fees only. All other fees such as the application fee, lab fees, program specific fees, course supplies, uniforms, textbook costs, and miscellaneous expenses such as parking and graduation fees will not be covered. Students are responsible for these costs.

Federal Financial Aid
Jefferson College will bill the State of Missouri for your A+ scholarship at the end of the 100% refund period (usually the 10th day of the semester). If financial aid eligibility has not been determined, students will not receive A+ funds for that semester.

If students are eligible for a Federal Pell Grant or Supplemental Grant (SEOG), these funds will be applied to the student's Jefferson College account first. Any covered costs that remain will be billed to the A+ program.

A+ Student Eligibility
Full-time enrollment is required. Students may begin initial enrollment at Jefferson College during any semester/term.

Full-Time Equivalency
Fall Semester - 12 credit hours
Spring Semester - 12 credit hours
Summer Semester - 6 credit hours

Continuation Of Eligibility
Eligibility for the A+ scholarship is determined
each semester.  To be renewed, A+ students must earn a 2.5 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale.  For A+ eligibility purposes, all coursework attempted after high school graduation is used to calculate the cumulative GPA. Dual Credit/Enrollment and Area Technical School credits are not calculated in the cumulative GPA when determining A+ eligibility.    

Reinstatement Of Eligibility
A+ students who have lost eligibility for funding may be reinstated if they enroll in subsequent terms and earn sufficient credit hours and/or cumulative GPA to remove the deficits.  Students are responsible for all costs incurred during terms of enrollment in which reinstatement is being sought.  Once the deficits have been removed, and prior to enrollment as an A+ student, they must submit an
A+ Reinstatement Request Form to the Jefferson College Student Financial Services Office to request reinstatement.

Transfer From An Ineligible Institution To Jefferson College
Initial A+ students who transfer from a non-A+ eligible post-secondary institution to Jefferson College must meet satisfactory academic progress at previously attended institutions to receive A+ funding and must be degree-seeking at Jefferson College.  Credit hours earned and cumulative GPA from all other institutions will be used to calculate A+ eligibility. 

A high school transcript with the A+ seal and official transcripts from all other colleges and universities must be submitted.

Transfer From One Eligible Institution To Another
Students who transfer from one eligible institution to Jefferson College may qualify for A+ funding if they meet all A+ requirements for continuation of eligibility.  GPA and credit hours earned with A+ funding will be used to determine eligibility.  Students who fail to meet A+ requirements will need to meet the reinstatement qualifications.

High School Dual College Credit
High School dual college credit courses, including the Area Technical School are not eligible for A+ funding.  Credits earned from previous dual credit classes will not be calculated in the cumulative GPA for purposes of A+ eligibility.

Students Enrolled In Developmental Courses
Developmental courses at Jefferson College qualify for A+ funding. However, all hours including developmental/remedial hours are included in the student's 105%. Grades from these courses will be used to calculate cumulative GPA.

For more information: For questions and information regarding the A+ program, please contact the Student Financial Services Office at (636) 481-3239 or (636) 797-3000/942-3000, ext. 3239, or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .
