Regulations allow a student to maintain financial aid eligibility for attempting credit hours that are within 150% of the credit hours (maximum time frame) required to receive a degree, diploma, or certificate. Students must complete and pass (earn) 67% of all courses attempted. Courses earned include grades of A, B, C, D, or S. Courses attempted include any course in which grades of A, B, C, D, F, W, WF, I, S, U or IP are given. This percentage is calculated by dividing the cumulative number of hours the student has successfully completed by the number of hours the student has attempted. The calculation must not fall below 67% and will be checked at the end of each term.

If a student has not maintained a cumulative 2.0 and/or has not completed 67 percent of the cumulative attempted at the time academic standing is checked, the student is placed on SAP warning. During the SAP warning period, the student may continue to receive financial aid for one term only. If, at the end of that term, the student has raised his/her cumulative GPA to at least a 2.0 and a 67 percent cumulative completion rate, the student is placed in good standing. If the student is still not making SAP by the end of that term, the student’s financial aid will be suspended.

Students who are not making SAP due to Maximum Time Frame are not granted a Warning Period.
