Satisfactory Academic Progress
What is Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)?
There are three requirements that must be maintained to be eligible of financial aid.
- Qualitative: Must maintain a cumulative GPA of
- 2.0 Undergraduate programs
- 3.0 Graduate programs
- Quantitative: Must earn credit for 66.67% of all courses attempted within the period.
- Maximum credit hours for a program: Must complete your program within 150% of the minimum hours required for the degree. For example: If the degree requires 124 minimum hours, you must complete your degree within 186. (124 x 150% = 186). Transfer hours are applied as both attempted and earned hours. More information is available in the university catalog.
When will my Satisfactory Academic Progress be evaluated?
At the end of each spring semester, your Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is evaluated. If students do not meet the SAP requirements, they will be placed on Financial Aid SAP Suspension and will not be eligible for future financial aid until SAP requirements have been met.
What do I do if my Financial Aid is suspended?
Once you are notified of not being eligible for federal financial aid, the student must submit the appeal within 4 working days of the suspension date. Students may write a letter of appeal and email it to GapsFinAidSapAppeals@letu.edu.
SAP suspension may be appealed if there were mitigating circumstances that have been resolved. See the catalog for further information.
