Federal law dictates that students receiving financial aid must make “minimum satisfactory progress” toward a degree in order to retain financial aid eligibility. The satisfactory academic progress rule states that undergraduate students must:
- maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.000.
- successfully complete a cumulative 2/3 (67%) of all credits for which they enroll. For example, a student enrolled for a total of 30 credits over the course of an academic year must complete a minimum of 20 degree credits.
- not enroll for more than 150 % of the number of credits needed to complete their undergraduate degree.
For more information, please refer to satisfactory academic progress (SAP) on the Office of Student Financial Aid website.
