    1. Maintain at least a half-time course load as defined by your educational institution
    2. Maintain a GPA of 2.9 or above on a 4.0 scale;
    3. Adhere to an established work schedule;
    4. Participate in Agency training classes or programs;
    5. Successfully perform your assigned duties; and
    6. Observe all workplace rules.

    You must have at least one year remaining in your studies before completing your degree requirements. (NOTE: One year must include consecutive Spring and Fall semesters).
