The student is ineligible to receive federal and state funding in subsequent semesters.

Regaining Eligibility

A student who has lost eligibility to participate in federal student aid programs for reasons of academic progress can regain that eligibility by opting to attend without receiving Federal or institutional financial aid and seeking alternative means to pay their bill while completing courses to meet SAP cumulative requirements and regain their SAP standing.

  • They have not met Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements
  • Which requirements they failed to meet
  • Instructions in regard to how to appeal
