Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeals
You must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) in order to receive financial aid. SAP is defined as successful completion of coursework toward an eligible certificate or degree.
Include a minimum grade point average (GPA) and a minimum pace requirement.
- Applies to your entire academic record (including transfer hours), whether or not
financial aid was received for prior semesters.
Your academic progress will be reviewed at the end of every semester. If you are placed on Suspension status, you may regain financial aid eligibility by:
- Earning the necessary GPA or semester hours to meet the minimum SAP standards while
not receiving financial aid.
- Completing the SAP Appeal process.
You may appeal a SAP Suspension Status on the basis of:
- serious injury or illness
- death of a relative
- other extenuating circumstances
To appeal, complete the SAP Appeal Form and complete an Academic Plan with your advisor. Refer to your suspension notification for deadline dates.
For more information, visit the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy page.
