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.
