Satisfactory Academic Progress (S.A.P.)

What is Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for financial assistance?

Students are required to achieve a 2.0 cumulative GPA and complete at least 66 percent of the course work they've attempted throughout their entire undergraduate program. Federal regulations limit the maximum number of hours a student may attempt and continue to receive financial aid to 150 percent. Click here to view the entire SAP policy

Friendly Tips and Reminders!

  • To bring up your grade point average, you may want to consider RETAKING courses in which you have received a grade of "D" or "F".  This should bring up your average much faster than if you were to enroll in all new courses. Of course you will want to retake courses in which you expect to do extremely well.
  • If you have already retaken courses, you may want to check with the Registrar's Office to be sure that the penalty for the lower grade of "D" or "F" has been replaced by credit for the higher grade in the retaken course. Refer to Grade Change section of policy.
  • Please make sure to get in SAP appeals in on time. Pay attention to the Soft Deadlines in place. This will ensure that your appeal gets reviewed in time for the upcoming semesters and that your aid is reinstated in a timely fashion. Don’t wait until the last day to submit your appeal.
