Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy at Chattahoochee Technical College
Students who receive financial aid funds must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). Financial aid students should be familiar with this policy. This is only a brief description of the CTC SAP policy.
SAP is measured in three ways and is checked every semester. Financial aid students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA and must complete 66% of all attempted classes. Also, students are required to complete their program of study within 150% of the time normally required.
No Show Policy
A “no show” is a student whose name appears on the class roster but fails to attend class the first time after his/her name appears on the roll. Any student reported as a “no show” by an instructor will be administratively withdrawn from the class.
No shows shall receive a 100% refund of applicable tuition (hours below 15-hour tuition cap) and applicable refundable fees, excluding the application fee.
Any student receiving financial aid who is reported as a “no show” will have his/her financial aid award for that class cancelled. All financial aid awards based on courses that students do not attend will be cancelled, and the student will be responsible for any applicable charges.
Refund Policy (Institutional)
Students withdrawing from a course by the end of the third instructional day of the semester (please see the applicable semester’s calendar for the exact date and time as set by the College) and no shows shall receive a 100% refund of applicable tuition (hours below 15-hour tuition cap) and applicable refundable fees, excluding the application fee.
Withdrawing students receiving federal financial aid will have their awards adjusted in compliance with the Return of Title IV Aid requirements.
It is expected that every student will discharge any indebtedness to the college as quickly as possible. When at all possible, CTC will attempt to resolve the overpayment during the next term(s). If the overpayment is due to student error and cannot be resolved, CTC must report the overpayment to the National Student Loan Data System. Students who are in overpayment status are ineligible for financial assistance at any postsecondary college until the overpayment is resolved and will be prohibited from attending classes in future semesters at CTC. Students are required to repay the over payment received even if it was due to school error. Most awarding errors are due to the dropping of courses, non-attendance or inaccurate information on the financial aid application.
