Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Federal Regulations require students receiving Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG, Federal Work Study or Federal Direct Loans to be making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).

This progress is measured according to the following three factors:

  • Cumulative/Career grade point average (GPA)
  • Cumulative/Career completion rate (CR)
  • Maximum Time Frame (MTF) allowed for completing a certificate or degree

All Financial Aid recipients are reviewed for SAP at the end of each payment period, including students enrolled in Gainful Employment Programs.

Generally, all periods of the student’s enrollment count when accessing SAP, even periods in which the student did not receive Federal Financial Aid.

Students will be notified by e-mail and by postal mail for Warning and Denial statuses.
