QUESTION:

HOW DOES SAP (SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS) AFFECT MY FINANCIAL AID?

ANSWER:

Students must make Satisfactory Academic Progress toward a degree or certificate to continue receiving financial assistance from federal, state, and institutional sources.  Satisfactory progress is measured both qualitatively (cumulative GPA), and quantitatively (number of hours completed).  Progress must be evident in both areas.  Failure to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress may result in either financial aid "warning" or suspension.

Academic progress is evaluated each term.  Students not maintaining satisfactory progress are notified of their standing and necessary action to retain, or regain eligibility for financial aid.  A detailed explanation of the Financial Aid Offices policy on SAP may be found in the University Catalog.
