Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy

A student must maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP) to continue to receive Federal Title IV financial aid. Federal financial aid includes Federal PELL grant, Federal SEOG, Federal Work Study, Federal Direct Loans (subsidized and unsubsidized), Federal Direct PLUS loan, and Federal Graduate PLUS loan. 

The Standards of Federal Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) include Grade Point Average, percentage of cumulative credits earned, and a maximum time frame measurement. If one of the measures is not being met, the student is not making SAP and thus becomes ineligible for federal financial aid.  All periods of enrollment are included whether or not the student received federal financial aid during that time.

SAP will be measured yearly at the end of the spring semester.  Winter enrollment will be counted in your spring calculations.
