Satisfactory Progress

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) and within the 150% Maximum Credit Limit.  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.

View our Satisfactory Academic Progress Guidelines found on our Forms/Publications page.

 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 program with a cumulative 2.0 GPA and within the 150% Maximum Credit Limit.
