Satisfactory Academic Progress
To remain eligible for financial aid, including loans, you will need to make progress each period of enrollment towards completing your degree or certificate. Every school is required to have a defined standard for “Satisfactory Academic Progress” that gauges a student’s progress toward a degree or certificate. If you do not make academic progress, you may be disqualified from receiving future financial aid.
Satisfactory Academic Progress standards include elements such as:
- Must be enrolled in an approved degree or certificate program
- Must meet a minimum number of credit hours for enrollment
- Must meet a minimum cumulative GPA
- Must complete two-thirds of all classes attempted
