1. In order to retain eligibility for financial aid students are required to maintain a
cumulative GPA of 1.5 or better for 1-36 hours attempted and a 2.0 or better for
more than 36 hours attempted and maintain a 67% completion rate. In addition,
students must complete their program of study within 1.5 times the published time
frame for their program of study. Students whose financial aid has been
terminated due to failure to maintain satisfactory progress standards may submit
an appeal by completing the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Appeal Form.
2. An appeal will be granted only if you can document extenuating circumstances
that prevent you from meeting the Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards.
3. Appeals submitted without documentation will not be considered. Documentation
may include, but is not limited to, one or more of the following: statement signed
by a physician with dates of treatment/hospitalization verifying that your medical
condition significantly impacted your ability to successfully complete the
semester; death certificates or obituary; statement from employer on letterhead
and signed by a supervisor, etc.

how your circumstances have changed so that you can comply with the policy
in the future. Please remember to attach your documentation to this form

SAP Financial Aid Review Committee does not meet with students or supporting
parties; therefore, it is important for you to provide all information requested on
the SAP Appeal Form.
