According to federal regulations, students must maintain satisfactory academic progress in their course of study to continue receiving Federal Title IV financial aid. Federal Title IV financial aid includes the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), and Federal Work Study (FWS).
Any state administered financial aid programs (i.e. HOPE Grant, HOPE Scholarship, HERO, Public Safety Memorial Grant, and Law Enforcement Personnel Grant) follow the same requirements.
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) includes several standards: qualitative, quantitative, and maximum time frame. Students must meet all standards to continue receiving financial aid. It is the responsibility of the student to be aware of SAP standards and his or her respective status.
