Satisfactory Academic Progress

Students must maintain an adequate rate of progress toward graduation as defined below. All periods of the student’s enrollment will be evaluated after each semester.   

This rate of progress is measured using two criteria: cumulative grade point average (GPA) and maximum time frame (MTF). Students who fail to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress will be placed on a financial aid warning period.  The warning period encompasses the next semester that the student attempts.  Eligibility for aid will continue during the warning period.  Once the warning period has elapsed, the student will not be eligible to receive Title IV Federal Financial Aid unless the minimum eligibility criteria are met or until the student has had an appeal approved by the Director of Financial Aid (see below for information on appeals).
