Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

The Division of Financial Aid (DFA) is required by federal regulation to determine whether a student is enrolled in a degree-seeking program and is meeting satisfactory academic progress requirements. DFA recalculates the academic progress status for students after final grades post each semester. Students need to become familiar with the three components of the satisfactory academic progress policy.
