Academic Standards for Financial Aid

Full-time students who fail to complete 12.00 non-repeat credits in a given semester or achieve a 2.0 minimum cumulative GPA in any given semester will be placed on Financial Aid Probation for one semester. This allows one semester of additional work to bring the academic record up to the minimum standards. Students will be notified in writing of Financial Aid Probation status and the conditions of the probation.

Students who fail to meet the minimum Satisfactory Academic Progress standards after the probation semester will have a suspension of further financial aid assistance until standards are met.

Students who have not met satisfactory academic progress standards or who have lost scholarship renewal because of failing to meet specific GPA requirements and who have special circumstances (for example, serious health problems) may appeal aid suspension. Students must make appeals in writing, outlining the extenuating circumstances, and summit appeal letters to the Financial Aid Office. An Appeal Review Committee will review the appeal and notify the student in writing of their decision.
