Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is the policy set forth by the University to ensure students are making progress towards their degree. To remain in good academic & financial standing students must:
- maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher AND
- complete at least 66.67% of the credits attempted
To view the full SAP policy refer to the Undergraduate Catalog.
Students who do not meet the SAP standards are placed on Academic Probation. Students are required to meet with their Academic Advisor after the start of the semester to go over probation information and complete a plan to be successful.
Advisor Meeting Goals:
- Clearly explain both SAP standards and Academic Probation requirements
- Discuss previous barriers to success; both academic and personal
- Identify areas for improvement through campus referrals, academic skills coaching & addressing time management strategies
- Schedule recurring meetings throughout the semester as a time to check in and adjust plan as needed
Academic Probation Frequently Asked Questions:
Why am I on Academic Probation?
A student is placed on Academic Probation when their cumulative grade point average (GPA) falls below a 2.0 and/or cumulative credit completion rate falls below 66.67% of the attempted credits. You can view your GPA and completion rate in records and registration on the bottom of the right side menu.
How could the credit completion rate requirement impact my choice to withdraw from a course or to change to a pass/low pass/no pass grading structure?
Students who are on Academic Probation should work closely with their Academic Advisor to monitor course progress and make appropriate changes if needed. Academic Advisors can advise on the University’s withdrawal policies and highlight important deadlines.
Will my financial aid be affected by being on Academic Probation?
Students can “Track their Financial Aid” through the AugNet Service’s Records and Registration Portal to review any documents that may be necessary to receive financial aid.
Important note: Students who are on Academic Probation for more than one term should submit their Academic Probation Plan as soon as possible to avoid any finance charges on their balance owed. Financial Aid cannot be disbursed until the Academic Probation Plan has been completed and submitted.
What if I left the University on Academic Probation and wanted to readmit?
Students who leave the University on Academic Probation or Suspension can review our Readmission Policy in the Undergraduate Catalog.
