Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
In accordance with federal regulations, all financial aid recipients are required to make satisfactory academic progress. This means that financial aid recipients must:
- Maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 and
- Accumulate a sufficient number of credits so as not to be more than eight semester hours (including transfer credits) behind the normal semester hours as described below.
- Institutional aid is limited to eight semesters for traditional undergraduates less for transfer students.
||Minimum Earned Credits Required at End of First Semester
||Minimum Earned Credits Required at End of Second Semester
A student's progress will be monitored at the end of each semester to determine eligibility for financial aid for the upcoming semester. A student who is more than 8 credits behind their entering class and/or has a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0 is not making satisfactory academic progress.
