Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for Financial Aid

Revised Feb. 2018 - Effective beginning with 2018-2019 Academic Year

Undergraduate

All students receiving financial assistance from the University, State Scholarship Programs, or Federal Student Aid Programs must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid. Quality and quantity of work is reviewed each semester. Undergraduate students will be expected to complete 67% of attempted credit hours each term with both a term and cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. In addition, a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 must be earned by the time they have earned the equivalent of 60 semester credit hours. Students in baccalaureate programs must complete their program within 186 attempted credits, and students in associates programs must complete their credits within 93 attempted credits. Earned credits include those courses graded as "A", "B", "C", "D", or "P". Courses graded as "F", "NP", "I", “INP” or "W" do not count as credits earned, but they do count as courses attempted for financial aid Satisfactory Academic Progress purposes. If you fall below this scale or have an insufficient number of credits earned at the end of each term, you will be placed on Financial Aid Warning for the next term. During the Warning term, you must raise your GPA to the required level and/or remove the deficiency in credits earned or your aid will be revoked until the required GPA or credits earned is reached. Appeals for Financial Aid Revoke may be addressed to the Director of Financial Aid. Students who have been re-instated after being revoked are considered to be on Financial Aid Probation and must meet specific requirements to continue to receive aid. Students who have been academically dismissed are automatically revoked from financial aid and if re-instated to the institution through appeal, may also need to appeal their financial aid status. Appeals received within the first 3 weeks of the term will be considered for that term. A student receiving a 0.0 GPA for any reason is automatically placed in a financial aid revoke status and must submit an appeal in order to have financial aid reinstated.

Graduate (except Accelerated M.Ed.)

All students receiving federal student aid must maintain Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress by meeting Concordia University academic eligibility requirements. For most graduate programs, students must maintain a 3.0 term and cumulative GPA as well as successfully complete at least 67% of attempted courses. Law students must maintain a 2.0 term and cumulative GPA. Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress is measured at the end of each term. Courses graded as "F", "NP", "I", “INP” or "W" do not count as credits earned, but they do count as courses attempted for financial aid Satisfactory Academic Progress purposes. Students who fall below these requirements for the first term will be placed on Financial Aid Warning. These students must meet academic progress requirements the next term. If they fail to do so, they will be placed on Financial Aid Revoke status and will be ineligible for financial aid. Students who have been placed on revoke status should submit their appeal to the Office of Financial Aid. Successful appeals will be placed on Financial Aid Probation and will be expected to meet specific requirements to continue to receive aid. Students who have been academically suspended will automatically be placed on Financial Aid Revoke status and will need to appeal their financial aid status if they successfully appeal their academic suspension. Appeals received within the first 2 weeks of the term will be considered for that term. A student receiving a 0.0 GPA and no academic credit for any reason is automatically placed in a financial aid revoke status and must submit an appeal in order to have financial aid reinstated.

Certain programs and scholarships may have more stringent criteria for meeting the conditions of the program/scholarship.

Graduate – Accelerated M.Ed.

All students receiving federal student aid must maintain Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress by meeting Concordia University academic eligibility requirements. Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress is measured at the end of each term. For the accelerated M.Ed. graduate program, students must maintain a 3.0 term and cumulative GPA as well as successfully complete at least 67% of attempted courses. Courses graded as "F", "NP", "I", or "W" do not count as credits earned, but they do count as courses attempted for financial aid Satisfactory Academic Progress purposes. If they fail to do so, they will be placed on Financial Aid Revoke status and will be ineligible for financial aid. Students who have been placed on revoke status should submit their appeal to the Office of Financial Aid. Successful appeals will be placed on Financial Aid Probation and will be expected to meet specific requirements to continue to receive aid. Students who have been academically suspended due to the University Academic Standing policy will automatically be placed on Financial Aid Revoke status and may need to appeal their financial aid status if they successfully appeal their academic suspension. Appeals received within the first 2 weeks of the term will be considered for that term. A student receiving a 0.0 GPA and no academic credit for any reason is automatically placed in a financial aid revoke status and must submit an appeal in order to have financial aid reinstated.

Reestablishing eligibility (for all programs)

When a student’s appeal has been denied or they have already been granted one appeal and failed to meet SAP standards during the probationary term, the student must reestablish eligibility for aid. The process for reestablishing eligibility is that a student must satisfactorily complete a term at full-time or equivalent (i.e. two terms at half-time enrollment) with the minimum required GPA without the benefit of Federal funding in order to reapply for aid. It is permissible for students to utilize private loan funds during a term that they are reestablishing eligibility. Simply sitting out or not attending a term does not reestablish eligibility for Federal aid purposes.
