Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Federal regulations require students receiving Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG, Federal Work Study, or Federal Direct Loans to be making “satisfactory academic progress”. This progress is measured at the end of each semester according to three factors: a semester and overall grade point average (GPA); completion rate (CR) of credit hours; and the time frame allowed for completing a certificate or degree. Contact the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions about the “satisfactory academic progress” policy.
