2020-2021 Financial Aid
Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal
This form is for students who have applied for financial aid but are not eligible because they are not meeting
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards. A complete description of Longwood’s SAP policy can be found
on the Office of Financial Aid’s website.
You may appeal this suspension of aid if the reasons for your failure to meet SAP were beyond your control or the
result of an unexpected situation that is now resolved. You must include any and all supporting documentation
relative to your situation.
Submission of the appeal does not guarantee approval, and students are responsible for dropping all classes by the
add/drop deadline if they are unable to pay for classes on their own. Only completed forms will be forwarded to
the Appeals Committee for review. If your appeal is approved and your financial aid is reinstated, it will not be
retroactive to any semester when these standards were not met. We will notify you via your Longwood email
account once a decision has been made.
