Continued Eligibility

Scholarship applications and Smart Aid applications will need to be filled out annually to continue receiving assistance. To remain eligible for financial aid, a student must maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA and remain in good behavioral standings.  If at any time during the school year, a student does not meet academic standards or does not adhere to the policies stated in the Bishop Manogue Catholic High School Parent-Student Handbook, Bishop Manogue may refuse or revoke any financial aid awarded.
