Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

All institutions of higher education must measure students’ academic progress toward graduation as required for participation in the Federal Title IV student aid programs. Academic progress must be measured by both qualitative (grade point average) and quantitative standards (percentage of hours earned over a period of time). The financial aid office reviews a student’s academic progress at the end of each term. Students who fail to meet either the qualitative or quantitative standards of satisfactory academic progress (SAP) are ineligible to receive federal financial aid and state need-based aid in future terms. The SAP policy is available at, click “Types of Financial Aid” and “Satisfactory Academic Progress.”
