FAQs - 10K Bachelors Degree

I just enrolled in Broward College as an associate’s degree student; how can I earn a $10,000 bachelor’s degree?
  1. ​Determine which of the 11 bachelor’s degrees meet your educational and career aspirations and print the 10K program sheet for your selected program.
  2. Ensure that you are enrolled in the appropriate AA or AS degree for years one and two listed on the 10K program sheet. 
  3. Follow the recommended courses on the 10K program sheet and make sure to maintain all of the program eligibility requirements. 
  4. Successfully complete your associate’s degree and apply to (and be accepted to) your selected bachelor’s program.
  5. Complete at least 75 credit hours toward your bachelor’s degree and apply for a 10K award using the 10K application. 
  6. Pay your tuition and associated fees until you reach $10,000 and the College will pay the remainder of your tuition and associated fees during your last year of baccalaureate studies at Broward College.
  7. Meet with an academic advisor regularly to ensure compliance with the 10K eligibility requirements and the 10K program sheet.  
My Term GPA fell to a 2.9 GPA, but my cumulative GPA is a 3.2. Am I still eligible for the 10K bachelor’s degree program?

​Yes, as long as your cumulative GPA is at least a 3.0 during all terms of study, and you satisfy the other eligibility requirements, you are still eligible for the program.

I completed 15 credits during the fall term and am enrolled in 15 credits during the spring term. I want to withdraw from one of my three-credit courses. Will I still be eligible for the 10K bachelor’s degree program if I do?

​Yes, if you successfully complete the three credit hours during the summer term.  Students must successfully complete at least 30 credits in an academic year.  If you withdraw from the class, and do not wish to retake it in the summer term, you will no longer be eligible for the program.
