Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal

While you are expected to meet minimum Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements to maintain your financial aid eligibility, we understand that extenuating circumstances can sometimes prevent you from making satisfactory progress toward your degree. If you are ineligible for financial aid because you are not meeting SAP requirements before the beginning of the academic year, and extenuating circumstances have hindered your academic performance, you may submit a SAP Appeal to have your eligibility reconsidered.

If your SAP Appeal is approved, you will be responsible for following specific conditions each term in order to maintain your financial aid eligibility during that academic year. We will notify you via email of the conditions you are required to meet to maintain eligibility, and we will review your progress before we disburse any additional aid to you each term.

If your SAP Appeal is denied, you will be responsible for all costs associated with your enrollment during the academic year. The Financial Aid and Scholarships Office will certify a private educational loan if you secure a loan and are approved by a private lender.

Submitting an appeal does not guarantee approval. Be sure to submit your appeal early, before the start of the term, so you can receive a timely decision, allowing you to plan accordingly. If you do not submit your appeal in a timely way, and later find out your appeal is denied after the term has started, you will be responsbile for any and all costs incurred, including any costs realted to a decision to withdraw from the semester.
