Satisfactory Academic Progress

In accordance with Federal and State regulations, Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is reviewed using a maximum time frame and pace of progression (quantitative); and GPA (qualitative) criteria at the end of each enrollment period (Summer, Fall, Spring). Standards apply to all students regardless of previous financial aid history.

SAP covers all federal programs including Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), and the Federal Work-Study (FWS), as well as the state Cal Grant. All financial aid recipients are required to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements.
