Satisfactory Academic Progress

Federal and state financial aid regulations require schools to set minimum standards for satisfactory academic progress and to hold students accountable for meeting the standards. Satisfactory Academic Progress is checked prior to awarding aid, even if students did not receive financial aid in past quarters. It is also checked at the end of every quarter aid is received.

The Satisfactory Academic Progress policy includes the following:

  1. Cumulative pace of progression towards degree or certificate must be at least 66.67 percent.
  2. Cumulative Grade Point Average requirement of 2.0 or greater.
  3. Credit limit requirement.

Copies of the complete Satisfactory Academic Progress policy are available on the Student Aid & Scholarships Office website at as well as at the Student Aid & Scholarships Office front counter.
