The three components are 1) cumulative GPA (must be 2.0 or greater), 2) completion rate (must pass at least 67% of
attempted classes), and 3) maximum timeframe (must be within 150% of program maximum). More information about
EFSC’s SAP standards is available on the Office of Financial Aid’s website and in the EFSC Catalog.
Deadlines*: Fall 2019 11/21/19 | Spring 2020 04/23/20 | Summer 2020 07/23/20
* Deadlines listed are for the full term. If enrolling only in shorter parts of term (Minimester A, Session I, or Summer B), appeals
must be submitted no later than two weeks prior to the last day of the part of term for which the aid is sought.
Late appeals will be considered for the next semester.
