Maintaining your Eligibility

What is Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)?

Federal regulations (CFR 668.32(f) and 668.34) require a student to move toward the completion of a degree or certificate within an eligible program when receiving financial aid. Specific requirements for academic progress for financial aid recipients are applied differently than Scholastic Standards. Federal regulations state that Academic Progress Standards must include a review of all periods of enrollment, regardless of whether or not aid was received. Students will be evaluated using the standards described below. Failure to meet any of these minimum standards will result in the loss of title IV, HEA program (federal financial aid) eligibility.

Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress

SAP are evaluated on each of the three measurements outlined below. Failure to meet any of these standards will result in suspension of eligibility for financial aid.
Note: Grades of F,I,N,W,X,Y,Z, and courses not yet graded are considered attempted but not meeting progress standards for the purposes of financial aid.

Students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative Grade Point Average in order to meet SAP GPA requirements.
