As a financial aid recipient, you must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) to remain eligible to receive financial aid. Regulations require you to complete your program with at least a 2.0 cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA), a cumulative credit completion rate of 67% and within the 150% of the maximum credit Llmit needed for your degree or certificate. Financial Aid SAP standards will help you achieve this goal. Each term after grades post, we will check your completion rate and GPA. The number of credits you need to complete will depend on your enrollment level at the time your financial aid disburses.

What is Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)?
SAP is an academic standards policy designed to ensure you, as a financial aid recipient, satisfactorily progress toward program completion. The Financial Aid Office is required by law to implement standards that will help you complete your academic program with a cumulative 2.0 GPA, completion of 67% of the classes you start and within the 150% maximum credit limit needed for your degree or certificate.
