Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
Satisfactory Academic Progress
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is a set of standards for financial aid progress. All financial aid recipients are required to meet satisfactory academic guidelines established by Northeast State as well as financial aid standards of progress, pursuant to Federal regulations.
The intent of this policy is to ensure that students who are receiving federal and state aid are making measurable progress toward completion of a degree, certificate or diploma program in a reasonable period of time and a reasonable number of credit hours attempted. The policy looks at all credit hours attempted, not just those taken while receiving financial aid.
