What is Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)?

SAP is short for Satisfactory Academic Progress. All students who receive financial aid must be making satisfactory academic progress towards their degrees. SAP consists of a student's completion rate and GPA. You must pass a minimum of 67 percent of all attempted courses and maintain a certain minimum GPA depending on total credits attempted (1-15 credit - 1.5; 16-30 credits - 1.75; 31 credits or more - 2.0). Students must also complete their programs of study before attempting 150% of the credits required for their programs.
