ACADEMIC PROGRESS (SAP) POLICY
This policy affects student eligibility for financial aid through any/all of the following federal and state financial aid programs:
To be eligible to receive any of the types of financial aid listed above, a student must be:
SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS
"Satisfactory academic progress" is a measurement of the student's successful progress in their studies and status (part time/full time). Satisfactory progress is evaluated once a calendar year, using standards that are both qualitative (academic performance as measured by grade point average) and quantitative (total number of academic credits earned within specified time periods).
Academic Performance as Measured by Grade Point Average
To meet this standard, a student must maintain the level of academic performance required to remain at the Academy as a full-time matriculated student.
Attempted 12 or more credits/semester: 3.0 Cumulative GPA
Attempted 6 or more credits/semester: 3.0 Cumulative GPA
Total Credits Earned and Time Limits for Degree/Certificate Completion
The Academy has determined what level of performance/grades count toward the required credits earned, as follows: All courses in which a grade of “A” through “C” have been assigned will count toward the required quantitative standard. Failed courses (F), audited courses, courses which are Incompletes (I) will NOT count toward the total credits earned and the achievement of this quantitative standard. Any student who receives an "I" in any course must notify the Registrar when the "I" is changed into a letter grade, in order for credits earned in that course to be counted the standards of performance.
