Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

金融援助 Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy (SAP)

财政援助办公室被要求监督接受联邦财政援助的学生,以确定他们是否在他们的学位项目上取得了令人满意的学术进展(SAP). SAP standards apply to all students receiving federal, state and institutional financial aid. 这些标准适用于学生的整个学位课程,包括没有申请助学金或注册时间少于全日制的课程. 联邦财政援助受助人的SAP是在学生入学的每一学年*计算的. The specific criteria of SAP and the consequences to the student if progress is not achieved, is outlined in the SAP Policy listed below. 对于这些标准的意图或解释,学生应该联系财政援助办公室.

SAP is measured in three components: Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA); Pace (Completion Rate); and Maximum Time Frame Limitation.

1. GPA: A student in an undergraduate program must meet minimum GPA standards. 

Total course credits attempted** Cumulative minimum GPA
0-4.9 1.5
5.0-7.9 1.75
8.0-11.9 1.8
12-15.9 1.9
16岁及以上 2.0

2. Pace: A student must complete an incremental percentage of all cumulative credits attempted.

Total course credits attempted** Minimum percentage of attempted course credits completed
0-7.9 58%
8-15.9 64%
16岁及以上 70%

*Academic Year Definition.

为了管理联邦财政援助的目的,一个学年被定义为至少两个15周的学期,在此期间,平均本科学生预计要完成至少6个课程学分. 每学期至少要注册3个学分才能被认为是全日制学生.

**Course Credit conversion to Semester Hours:

One Course Credit = 4 Semester Hours

3.  最大时间框架:学生必须在以尝试课程学分衡量的课程公布长度的150%以内完成他们的教育项目(cc). 例如: the majority of undergraduate programs at Coe College require 32 cc 为毕业. A student can receive federal financial aid for a maximum of 48 attempted cc (32cc x 1.5). 修读双专业/辅修专业的学生或换专业的学生通常需要完成所有学位要求,然后达到完成课程所要求的150%.

金融援助 Warning

如果学生的GPA或Pace没有达到SAP的最低标准,将在下一个学期被列入财务援助警告. 联邦 financial aid can be received during a 金融援助 Warning term. 在警告期开始时,财务援助办公室会向学生发出财务援助警告通知.

金融援助 Suspension

如果一个学生在警告期没有达到SAP要求或尝试达到48cc,将不再有资格获得联邦财政援助,并被暂停财政援助. The Office of 金融援助 will notify the student of their financial aid suspension; the notice will include information on the financial aid appeal process.

金融援助 Appeal

A student may appeal a financial aid suspension by completing the SAP Appeal Form. 申请应提交给财政援助办公室,并必须说明学生未能达到SAP标准的原因,以及学生的情况发生了什么变化,使他们能够在学期内达到SAP标准. 情况是有限的,不能基于学生需要援助或缺乏知识,经济援助处于危险之中. Examples of possible situations include documented serious illness, 严重伤害, 家庭成员死亡或其他情况,使学生无法达到SAP标准. 助学金申请委员会将审核申请,并在收到填妥的申请表格后14天内通知申请人申请结果. 如果学生申请被拒绝,如果他或她正式放弃所有课程,将获得100%的学费退款.

金融援助 Probation

一个学生成功地上诉他们的经济援助暂停将被置于经济援助缓刑. 联邦 financial aid can be received for the term a student is on 金融援助 Probation.

学术计划

如果学生不能证明在经济援助缓刑期间可以达到SAP标准,则需要提交一份学术计划,作为经济援助缓刑上诉的一部分. An 学术计划 is generally developed based on a student’s individual needs.

基于学术计划的申请被批准的学生必须满足该计划的条款才能获得联邦财政援助. A student’s 学术计划 will be evaluated each term and, if it is determined that the conditions of the plan are not met, the student may be placed on 金融援助 Suspension for the subsequent term.

Regaining Eligibility when a 金融援助 Appeal has not been granted

If a 金融援助 Probation Appeal is denied or an appeal was never submitted, 学生可以在不接受联邦财政援助的情况下完成一些课程,从而重新获得获得财政援助的资格. 如果可以证明符合SAP标准或已经制定了学术计划,则学生有责任联系财政援助办公室, 如果之后, will ensure the student is able to meet SAP standards by a specific point in time.

影响 SAP of certain types of status marks and credits:

审计的课程:

Audited courses do not count toward degree requirements and do not impact SAP.

Status Mark of I, O and X:

在SAP评估时未报告成绩的课程将被计算为尝试学分. Credit is not earned and GPA is not impacted. 学生有责任在成绩报告出来后通知经济援助办公室.

Pass/Not-Pass Graded Courses:

Grades of P count as attempted credits and credits earned. Grades of N, NP count as attempted credits, but not credits earned. Grades of P, N and NP do not impact GPA.

转移学分:

Accepted transfer courses count as attempted and earned credits, but do not impact the cumulative GPA. 在其他机构学习的课程如果没有被1xbet体育接受,则不影响SAP标准.

Updating Coursework:

Successfully completed courses that are repeated are counted as attempted credits but not credits earned. 在重复课程中获得的成绩将取代之前获得的成绩,并可能影响累计GPA. 学生必须直接向经济援助办公室报告任何影响援助资格的成绩变化/更新.

失败的课程 重复的被计算为尝试和挣得的时数,因此会影响累计GPA.

Status Mark of W and WF:

Courses for which a mark of  W are recorded count as attempted credits.  Courses for which a mark of WF are recorded count as attempted credits and impact GPA.
