How may an agency waive up to 320 hours of the 640-hour work requirement for a student with outstanding academic achievement and exceptional job performance if that student has not worked in the agency long enough to receive a performance appraisal?

Agencies may wish to modify their performance plans to allow student evaluations after a minimum of 320 hours in order to take advantage of this new flexibility. If the student meets the criteria for exceptional job performance and outstanding academic achievement, the program allows an agency to evaluate a SCEP student after 320 hours.
