Satisfactory Academic Progress Reviews

SAP is evaluated after each period of enrollment (Fall, Spring and Summer) to determine eligibility for the upcoming semester. Students who fail to meet the SAP requirements will be given a Financial Aid Warning and have one semester to meet all requirements. Failure to meet SAP requirements following a Financial Aid Warning will result in the student becoming ineligible for all financial assistance awarded from our office (Federal and university-based grants, scholarships and loans). 

Students who become ineligible and have extenuating circumstances which contributed to poor academic performance may appeal to be placed on Financial Aid Probation for one additional semester of eligibility. After a Financial Aid Probation, students must either meet SAP requirements or fund their educational expenses without the use of federal or institutional financial assistance. Undergraduate students who qualify may use alternative private loans for one semester while they work to regain eligibility. Graduate students who qualify may continue to use alternative private loans beyond one semester as long as their private loan lender allows.
