Status in the case of failure to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards:

Warning: A letter is sent informing you of failure to meet the SAP requirements (minimum cumulative GPA (2.0) and/or the 67% completion rate). Students will be allowed to enroll and are eligible to receive financial aid during the warning term.

Suspension: If a student does not meet the minimum cumulative GPA (2.0) and/or the 67% completion rate during the warning term, they are suspended and will not be allowed to enroll or receive financial aid for a minimum of one academic year.

Probation: If you participate in the college's appeals process and the appeal is granted, you are eligible to enroll and receive financial aid on probation status.

Notification: Students placed on warning, suspension or probation will be notified of their status by US mail and email at the end of each term, including summer. The college will also notify suspended students regarding the process by which a student may appeal for reinstatement.

Abuse of Financial Aid: 

Note that the college may immediately suspend students from financial aid eligibility in cases where such aid is not used appropriately, including but not limited to:

  • Previously suspended (and reinstated) students whose academic performance falls below acceptable standards during a subsequent term of enrollment;
  • Students who register for courses, receive financial aid, and do not attend any classes;
  • Students whose attendance patterns appear to abuse the receipt of financial aid.
