how you plan to meet your educational goals should be established. Do not leave any blanks and N/A is not accepted. Not
completing this form in its entirety could delay the appeal process.

NOTE to ADVISORS: You should not sign this form until the student has completed the form in its entirety. Please be
aware that it is important for a student who has an active SAP Educational Plan to only take as many hours as they can
complete successfully. Students often request to be full-time (12 or more hours) in order to receive their full PELL funds,
but that may not be advisable given their SAP situation. While you cannot stop a student from registering for additional
hours, you can explain the possible ramifications and discuss a plan of success for the student. This discussion should
include the student’s commitment as well as the advisors commitment to the student’s success.
