In order to receive federal, state, and institutional financial aid, students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
To maintain SAP, students must do 3 things:
1.-Pass Attempted Courses
- Pass and complete a minimum of 67 percent (75 percent for Graduate Students) of all attempted courses. Classes must be completed with a passing grade. Failing grades, drops, incomplete, and withdrawals can affect a student's ability to keep their financial aid.
2.-Meet GPA criteria
Students must make sure their GPA is at or above the following levels:
3.-Not Exceed Maximum Time Limit to Receive Financial Aid
- Undergraduate students cannot exceed 180 credit hours for a first Bachelors’ or 90 hours if seeking a second Bachelors’ degree (Maximum Time Frame = required hours to graduate from degree x 150%).
- Graduate students working on a Master’s degree cannot exceed 63 credit hours or 45 hours if working on a second Masters’ degree
- Graduate students working on a Doctoral degree cannot exceed 99 credit hours
