Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Federal regulations require the University to establish Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress. You must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress toward a course of study regardless of whether you previously received financial aid at the University. Satisfactory Academic Progress is measured both in terms of quality and quantity. You must maintain a minimum grade point average and complete a minimum number of credits each term you are enrolled. In addition, assistance will be limited to a maximum number of credits in relation to your degree requirements.  The programs affected by the Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress include: Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, FRAG, FSAG, Federal Work Study, Federal Direct Subsidized Stafford, Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford, and Federal Direct PLUS Loans. Institutional Scholarships and/or Grants are subject to the same standards.  All courses taken at the University will be counted. Failure to meet the requirements of satisfactory academic progress will result in the student being placed on probation, suspension or termination of financial aid eligibility.
