Students meeting the minimum requirements for academics and attendance at the evaluation point are considered to be making SAP until the next scheduled SAP. Students will receive a hard copy of SAP determination at the time of each evaluation. Students failing SAP may have their financial aid interrupted, unless the student is on warning or has prevailed upon appeal resulting in a status of probation.
SAP WARNING: A students’ initial failure to meet SAP at an evaluation point will be placed on warning and considered to be making SAP during the warning period. The student will be advised in writing of the actions required to attain SAP by the next evaluation. If, at the end of the warning period, the student still has not met both the attendance and academic requirements, the student may be placed on probation and, if applicable, may be deemed ineligible to receive financial aid.
SAP PROBATION: Students failing to meet attendance or academic SAP after the warning period will be placed on probation and considered to be making SAP during the probationary period if the student appeals the decision and prevails upon appeal.
Only students having the ability to meet SAP, either attendance or academic, by the end of the evaluation period may be placed on probation. Students on an academic plan must be able to meet requirements set forth in the academic plan by the end of the next evaluation period. Students progressing towards their specific academic plan will be considered making SAP. The student will be advised in writing of the actions required to attain SAP by the next evaluation. If, at the end of the probationary period, the student still has not met the attendance and academic requirements for SAP, the student will be determined as NOT making SAP and will not be eligible to receive financial aid.
Students may re-establish SAP and financial aid, by meeting minimum attendance and academic requirements by the end of the warning or probationary period.
APPEALS: Student appeals must contain an explanation of why they failed SAP and what has changed in their situation which will allow them to meet SAP at the next evaluation.
Students may appeal due to the death of a relative, injury or illness of the student or one of their children or the illness or injury of a parent provided there is no one else available to care for the parent.
Students must provide documentation of relatives’ death in the form of a funeral notice or obituary. Documentation required for illness or injury will be a physicians’ note indicating the type of illness or injury and an estimated time needed for recovery.
Results of the appeal will be noted on the appeal and placed in the students file.
