Kentucky scholarship program could require repayment

Kentucky high school graduates who qualify for free community college tuition would have to repay some of that money if they drop out or their grades aren’t high enough.
    
A tentative two-year operating budget proposal includes $25 million to give free community college tuition to all Kentucky high school graduates, as long as the state has enough money to pay it. Students must take at least 15 credit hours each semester and maintain a 2.5 grade point average to be eligible. The plan also includes private schools and two-year degree programs at four-year institutions.
    
Lawmakers announced Friday students would have to pay back the money for any semester they do not finish except for an emergency. Students would also have to pay the money back if their cumulative grade point average falls below 2.5.
