Hi guys! I'm currently a Freshman here at ASU, and just finished up my first semester, about to start my second. I have a New American University Scholarship and just had a quick question. They just changed the renewal standards to where you have to have 30 credit hours by the end of the year. My first semester I was taking 14 Credit hours, but took a fairly rigorous schedule for a freshman (since I'm ahead credit wise). I ended up feeling way overloaded and dropped one class. This put me at 11 credit hours, which I am aware isn't technically full time. However I went to the scholarship office and they said it shouldn't really effect my scholarship since this was my first semester, and that if it effected my numbers at the end of the year I would simply be put on probation, which you are apparently allowed three semesters of? I was wondering if this was true, because in order to get to 30 hours I would have to take 19 credit hours this semester, which I don't see happening without my gpa suffering. I hate this situation as I am definitely NOT and never have been a troubled student.
