Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
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/Zell Grant, HOPE/Zell 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 three 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. Click on the link below to read the complete SAP Policy.
Note: The deadline for submitting SAP appeals to be reviewed during the mid-Fall review is October 21, 2016 by close of business. Students can still appeal after this date and time and have their appeal reviewed during the “end of Fall” SAP review. Decisions for the end of Fall review will still be effective Spring 2017.
