Federal guidelines require that measurable progress is made toward degree completion
in order to receive federal and state financial aid. This requirement is called Satisfactory
Academic Progress (SAP). SAP is measured in the following three ways: cumulative and
major Grade Point Average (GPA), pace of progression, and maximum timeframe. Failure
to meet SAP as established by the university’s SAP Policy will lead to federal and state
financial aid ineligibility.
Students may appeal for reconsideration of federal and state aid eligibility by completing
this form. Appeals are reviewed by an appeals committee on a case-by-case basis and
students are emailed with a decision or a request for more information within two to
three weeks. The deadline to appeal is November 4 for the fall semester and April 6 for
the spring semester.
