Satisfactory Academic Performance

Federal law dictates that students receiving financial aid must make "minimum satisfactory progress" toward a degree in order to retain financial aid eligibility. The satisfactory academic progress rule states that undergraduate students must:

  1. maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00.
  2. successfully complete a cumulative 2/3 (67%) of all credits for which they enroll.
  • For example, a student enrolled for a total of 30 credits over the course of an academic year must complete a minimum of 20 degree credits.
  1. not enroll for more than 150 % of the number of credits needed to complete their undergraduate degree.
