Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards ensure that you are successfully completing your coursework and can continue to receive financial aid. All students receiving financial aid are required to meet SAP standards.

Federal regulations require the University to establish, publish, and apply standards to monitor your progress toward completing your degree program. If you fail to meet the SAP standards, you will be placed on financial aid warning or suspension. Your academic performance must meet the SAP standards below.

Additional resources:

Undergraduate students

  • Your cumulative GPA must be at least 2.0 (or higher, depending on your college). 
  • You are eligible to receive financial aid for 150 percent of the published degree credits required to complete your program. For example, if your undergraduate degree program requires 120 degree credits, you are eligible to receive financial aid for up to 180 attempted credits. 
  • You must earn at least 67% of the credits you attempt. Each semester, the total number of credits you have attempted will be compared to the total number of credits you have earned.
