Federal regulations require a student to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards which entails
earning a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average and completing a minimum 67% of the course
work attempted. Because you have not met one or both of these standards, this appeal form is required.
Follow the instructions carefully, as failure to do so will result in the appeal being denied.

ability to maintain satisfactory academic progress such as when a student is the victim of a crime, the
victim of physical or emotional abuse, or there is a significant breakdown of a relationship in a
student’s family. If the student wishes to keep these circumstances private, they can request to have a
meeting with a financial aid counselor).
