Satisfactory Academic Progress is determined at the end of each payment review period.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Warning – Student who fall below the qualitative or quantitative measure will be placed on “satisfactory academic progress warning.” Students on satisfactory academic progress warning are eligible for one additional payment period. If the student does not meet the satisfactory academic progress standards by the end of the “warning” period, the student becomes no longer eligible for federal aid until satisfactory academic progress is met or the student successfully appeals the suspension.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal – If a student is found to be ineligible for federal financial aid because the standards of satisfactory academic progress requirements were not met, the student may appeal this decision to the Financial Aid Department by stating, in writing, the reasons why the minimum requirements were not met and why financial aid should not be terminated. With filing an appeal, make sure to provide a full explanation along with documentation, verifying the circumstances that led to the standards for the satisfactory academic progress not being met.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Probation – A student who has their appeal approved, will be placed on “probation” and be eligible for financial aid for one additional payment period. Students on probation will have their academic progress monitored each term to ensure that they can meet the standards of satisfactory academic progress requirements.
