Students receiving Title IV aid must show evidence of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) by meeting program pursuit standards and reaching specific benchmarks of academic progress. Program pursuit is defined as completing a certain percentage of degree-specific course work each term. Academic progress has two components: students must accumulate credits toward the degree at a certain rate and maintain a minimum grade point average.
A Title IV aid recipient who fails to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) by not meeting the program pursuit or the academic progress requirement loses eligibility for further Title IV aid until he or she is reinstated in good standing.
