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, cumulative completion rate of 67% of the classes you start, and within the 150% maximum credit limit needed for your degree or certificate.
As a financial aid recipient, you must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) to remain eligible to receive financial aid. Regulations require you to maintain at least a 2.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA), a cumulative Credit Completion Rate (CCR) of 67% within the 150% of the maximum Credit Limit needed for your degree or certificate. Financial Aid SAP standards will help you achieve this goal. Each term after grades are posted, we will check your cumulative completion rate and Cumulative Grade Point Average. The number of credits you need to complete to maintain progress towards your degree will depend on your enrollment level at the time your financial aid disburses.
