Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid

Students must meet certain standards for satisfactory academic progress (SAP) in order to receive financial aid. The SAP standards include:

  • Cumulative Grade Point Average
  • Percentage of Credits Completed
  • Maximum Time Frame

These standards help ensure that federal and state funds are successfully supporting students to achieve their degrees.

Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress is evaluated at the end of each semester, including the summer term. Whether you meet these requirements will determine your eligibility for aid next semester.
