Satisfactory Academic Progress

We are required to evaluate your academic progress, abbreviated SAP.  In order to continue receiving financial aid, you must maintain a certain grade point average, complete at least two-thirds (or 67%) of all classes you attempt, and graduate within a time frame no longer than 150% of the published length of your program.  Please be sure to read the entire SAP Policy attached below.

We know that sometimes things don’t always go as planned, so if your financial aid gets terminated because you did not meet our SAP Policy, you have the right to appeal that decision. You must meet with your academic advisor to discuss why you were unsuccessful in the past, what you will do differently in the future, and develop your Academic Compliance Plan. Your Academic Compliance Plan shows, in great detail, how and when you will again meet the SAP standards.

Below you will find an Information Sheet, which explains the termination appeal process and the deadline dates to apply, and the Academic Compliance Plan form, which will be completed by you and your academic advisor.  You must attach to your completed Academic Compliance Plan the following:  a written statement documenting the reasons why you were not able to meet the SAP Policy, as well as ALL official documentation to support your case.  Such documentation may include doctor certifications, copies of death certificates, divorce documents, etc.  Your academic advisor will collect all of your documents and submit them along with your Academic Compliance Plan to the Financial Aid Appeals Committee.  Be sure to submit everything before the Appeal Deadline Dates listed on the Information Sheet.
