- Maintains a 70% (B-average with no failures)
- Maintains a full course load
- Continues in a field of study related to Environmental Studies or Native Studies
- Students will not be supported beyond the normal length of their program of study (i.e., beyond the second year of a diploma program or the third or fourth year of a university degree program).
