Satisfactory Academic Progress

In order to receive federal, state, and institutional financial aid, students must maintain Satisfactory Academic progress (SAP).

 

To maintain SAP, students must do 3 things:

 

1 Pass Attempted Courses

  • Pass and complete a minimum of 67 percent (75 percent for Graduate Students) of all attempted courses. Classes must be completed with a passing grade. Failing grades, drops, incompletes, and withdrawals can affect a student’s ability to keep their financial aid.

2 Meet GPA criteria

  • Students must make sure their GPA is at or above the following levels:
                       Freshmen.............1.7
                       Sophomores........1.8
                       Juniors..................2.0
                       Seniors.................2.0
                       Graduates............3.0

3 Not Exceed Maximum Time Limit to Receive Financial Aid


  • Undergraduate students cannot exceed 180 credit hours
  • Graduate students working on a Masters degree cannot exceed 63 credit hours
  • Graduate students working on a Doctoral degree cannot exceed 99 credit hours
