ACADEMIC PROGRESS EXCEPTION FOR FINANCIAL AID
Complete and submit this form if you now meet the academic progress guidelines for financial aid, as a result of regaining eligibility
from successfully completing a term, having grades posted for incomplete coursework or study abroad, or having a grade changed.
If you completed coursework outside the Pitt system, you must include a copy of that grade transcript.

Choose the option that best describes your situation:
_____ I have successfully completed coursework that has placed me back into acceptable academic standing in terms of both
the number of credits I have completed (67% Rule) and my cumulative GPA.
I understand that the successful completion of coursework at any Pitt campus can increase both my cumulative GPA and
total number of credits completed; whereas, the successful completion of coursework outside of the Pitt system will affect
the total number of credits completed, provided that those credits transfer. The GPA for courses taken outside of the Pitt
system is NOT transferrable. (Attached a copy of your grade transcript(s) for all courses taken outside of the Pitt system).
_____ I have completed the necessary coursework and my G or I grade has been updated. In completing the necessary
coursework, I now meet the requirements, in terms of both the number of credits I have completed (67% Rule) and my
cumulative GPA, that have placed me back into acceptable academic standing.
_____ I was enrolled in a study abroad program and my grades were not available at the time that academic progress was
checked. My grades are now available, and I meet the requirements, in terms of both the number of credits I have
completed (67% Rule) and my cumulative GPA, that have placed me back into acceptable academic standing. I have
attached a copy of my grade transcript from my study abroad program for your review.
_____ Since the initial review of my academic progress, I had a grade change occur which places me back into acceptable
academic standing in terms of both the number of credits I have completed (67% Rule) and my cumulative GPA.
By submitting this form, the Financial Aid Office will reevaluate my academic progress and will notify me in writing of the outcome. I
understand that I must complete enough credits (67% Rule) and I must earn the minimum cumulative GPA that places me back in
acceptable academic standing before my Federal Title IV and University-funded financial aid will be reinstated. Failing to
reestablish acceptable academic progress will result in the cancellation of my Federal Title IV and University funding and may affect
my eligibility for the PHEAA State Grant.
