Satisfactory Academic Progress

Satisfactory academic progress policy: In order to receive financial aid, you must be making satisfactory academic progress (SAP).

Satisfactory academic progress appeal process and form: If you receive a notice of ineligibility for federal aid based on SAP guidelines, you may send a SAP appeal form, a signed and dated letter of appeal and all supporting documentation, in accordance with the satisfactory academic progress appeal process and calendar.

Alternative Loans: If you do not meet SAP, you can apply for a private alternative loan. Make sure the loan does not require SAP.
