 Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal Summary (SAP)

 Official Satisfactory Academic Policy 

Undergraduate Credit Requirements:

To maintain eligibility for financial aid, all students must complete a minimum number of credits based on their enrollment level. All attempted courses count for this calculation, including “W” (withdrawal), “V” (faculty initiated drop), “NS” (not satisfactory), “IP” (in progress), “I” (incomplete), and “F” (failing).

Failure to maintain good standing for two consecutive semesters will result in the loss of eligibility and suspension of financial aid.
