    I'm trying to create a form for students to apply for scholarships. They have five questions to answer and I also need to be able for the system to not allow the student to apply for the ones they aren't eligible for. Where do I go to do this?

    Thanks,

    Hello @mwpaulk,

    Thank you for contacting our support team.

    After checking your account, I have found that you have a form titled Scholarship Application Form, I assume this is the form you are referring to.

    If you want to prevent your students from applying for scholarships that they aren't eligible for, you can use the Form Conditions to hide or disable those choices. Kindly share with us the details for which students should be eligible for which products and we can certainly provide a solution for you.

    Otherwise, feel free to test the conditions yourself to insert the logic to hide or disable the necessary sections of your form.

    A GPA of 2.5 or higher, certain counties are also one of the criteria

    Sure thing.

    What you can do is use the Show / HideField condition to hide sections of your form based on the GPA section of your form. However, you will need to use a Number field for the GPA for this to work, the GPA field is currently a Short Text Field. Short Text fields should only accept Text, if you need a number, you will need to use a Number field.

    Once you have set the correct Number field for the GPA, you can use it in the condition to check if the value is less than 2.5. If it is less than 2.5, then you can hide sections of your form so that it cannot be submitted.

    Here is a screenshot of what the condition will look like:

    I went ahead and cloned your form and made the changes I have mentioned to get it to work properly. Please feel free to test my sample form for yourself to see how it works. Sample Form - https://form.jotform.com/203006889439968
