Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

With specific guidance from our accrediting bodies and the federal government, the school has established a mandatory Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy in order to help provide guidelines for students in maintaining their academic progress towards completion of a degree.  Failure to comply with the established SAP policy could result in a loss of financial aid eligibility along with eventual academic probation and dismissal.  Please be aware that dropping courses, reducing course load and failing courses will negatively affect your academic progress.  The school has established periodic checkpoints to monitor student progress and to provide early intervention and corrective measures when appropriate.  It is the student's responsibility to be aware of and understand the current SAP policy, which can be found here, along with being available in the school Course List & Syllabi.  Please contact your student academic advisor with any questions regarding the policy or to review your current academic standing.
