Form 1308 - Satisfactory Academic Progress Suspension Appeal Form
Students who fail to meet one or more of the SAP requirements after their warning semester are considered to be ineligible to receive financial aid. Such a student may appeal his/her eligibility status to the SAP Appeals Committee. If approved, aid will be reinstated for a probationary semester. An appeal must be based on significant extenuating circumstances that seriously impacted academic performance.
An extenuating circumstance is something unexpected and outside of the student's control. Circumstances such as family/work balance, lack of effort or maturity, or birth of a child will not be considered.
Documentation is typically required for an appeal to be approved. Third-party documentation of your circumstances gives you the best chance at approval.
Please note that filing a SAP Appeal does not guarantee continued eligibility for financial aid
Students wishing to appeal must submit this online form complete in its entirety and provide supplemental documentation. Please provide an explanation of extenuating circumstances that directly impacted your ability to meet the minimum requirements of the SAP policy for each semester of poor academic performance. Describe the steps that you have taken or will take to address or improve your academic performance. Attach documentation to support your appeal. Appeals are evaluated by committee and students will be notified of a decision by mail or e-mail.
*While the committee understands that financial aid may be needed in order for you to attend classes, this is not a valid reason for approval of an appeal. No consideration will be given for a student's inability to pay. The approval of the appeal is based on your academic history, your explanation, the strength of your documentation, your plan of improvement, and whether or not you can achieve the minimum requirements of a cumulative 67% progression rate and cumulative 2.0 GPA within two semesters.
