  • 3. Introduction
    Satisfactory Academic Progress
    The Higher Education Act of 1965 mandates that institutions of higher education monitor the academic progress of students who receive federal financial aid.
    Only students receiving federal financial aid and institutional grants will be reviewed by these policies.
    Satisfactory Academic Progress Changes Effective July 1, 2011:
    Rationale for Regulation:
    The department, concerned that students are receiving federal student aid despite lack of academic progress, has tightened existing regulations.

  • 4. Measuring SAP
    GPA:
    OSFS will continue to require a 2.0 GPA for Undergraduate Students
    4
  • 5. Hours:
    Hours are now measured by reviewing a student’s completion rate also known as Pace.
    Current Undergraduate students must maintain a 67% completion rate to continue on financial aid eligibility.
    Pace is determined by dividing the cumulative number of credit hours successfully completed by the cumulative number of credit hours attempted.
    Measuring SAP
    5
  • 6. Measuring SAP
    Pace = cumulative number of hours successfully completed
    cumulative number of hours attempted

    Letter Grades A – D- and Credit (CR)
    Unsuccessfully Completed Hours:
    Letter Grade F, Q-dropped courses, Incompletes (I), Temporary delay of course grades (X), No credit (NC) and Withdrawn courses (W)
    Attempted Hours:

    Example: Pace
    Susan, an incoming freshman, completes the semester with 12 attempted hours, 9 successfully completed hours (2 A’s & 1 C), one Q-drop. Her pace is 9/12= 75%. She is meeting SAP.
    Jane, a senior, completes the semester with 15 attempted hours, 6 successfully completed hours (1 D & 1 C), 9 hours of Q-drops. She is a transfer student this fall and transferred 91 hours. Her pace, including transfer hours, is 97/106= 91%. She is meeting SAP.
    Michael, a sophomore, completes the semester with 12 attempted hours, 9 successfully completed hours (2 B’s & 1C) and one F. He withdrew from 12 hours the Fall semester of his Freshman year and successfully completed 6 of 12 hours Spring of his Freshman year. His pace is 15/36=42% . He is not meeting SAP.

    FINANCIAL AID PROBATION WITH AN ACADEMIC PLAN
    If a student submits an appeal and OSFS determines that they cannot make SAP at the end of one semester they will be placed on an Academic Plan.
    Academic Plan:
    Is student specific and must specify a certain point in time in which the student will meet SAP.
    If may require a student successfully complete X number of hours per semester for X number of semesters to meet pace.
    It may require a certain semester GPA for X number of semesters to meet the minimum cumulative GPA requirement.
