Federal regulations mandate that a student receiving Federal Student Aid under Title IV programs must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) in his/her course of study regardless of whether or not student aid is awarded each semester. Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is measured with the following standards:
If a student is suspended from student aid because his/her cumulative grade point average (GPA) does not meet the minimum 2.0 GPA, he/she may take additional classes without student aid (unless the student is academically suspended) to raise his/her GPA and, if successful, may be reinstated. If a student is on academic probation or suspension, he/she will automatically be on student aid probation or suspension. If a student is reinstated from academic suspension by appeal or any means, he/she must appeal his/her student aid status separately to be considered for student aid reinstatement eligibility.
If your financial aid is SUSPENDED you may file a Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Appeal to be considered for financial aid reinstatement based on extenuating circumstances that were a factor in not meeting SAP.
Please note: You are responsible for payment arrangements pending an appeal decision. Aid for tuition is not guaranteed nor is a book charge available to you pending a decision.
