It is financing from the state to help students pay for college, if the student meets the requirements while still in high school.
Crowder officials say the biggest change to the "A Plus" Program is the amount of years students can use the funding.
In the past, it could be used for a total of 6 semesters, but now students can use the assistance for 4 years after graduating high school.
The funding will now only pay for 105 percent of classes required for a degree. Students will be limited on the number of extra courses they can take.
"There are some pluses and minuses to that," says Jim Riggs, Director of Admissions. "Students often have developmental classes and those are going to be added into the 105 percent total."
Students must maintain a GPA of 2.5 each semester in college, but now students will not be monitored until after their second semester.
Those who take college courses in high school will no longer have those classes counted as an "A Plus" semester. That means the grant can pay for more classes while in college.
