If you fail to meet the above requirements, you will be notified by Financial Aid Services that you are no longer eligible for financial assistance. Undergraduates who do not meet Satisfactory Academic Progress must take the Achieving Satisfactory Academic Progress (ASAP) workshop.

You have the right to appeal the Financial Aid Office’s decision.  You can fill out the Financial Aid Satisfactory Appeal Form and describe any personal circumstances and/or extenuating circumstances that contributed to your academic performance.  Your appeal, along with an academic plan, signed by your academic advisor, which outlines your action plan for the following semester,  must be received within thirty (30) days of receiving the SAP financial aid ineligibility letter.

The Financial Aid Advisory Committee will review all appeals.  Incomplete appeals will not be considered.  The decision of the committee is final.  The SAP Appeal Process is for financial aid purposes only.  It does not substitute for the university's review of a student’s academic standing.
