Federal regulations require that all students who receive financial assistance demonstrate that they are moving through their academic program at a reasonable rate and are making progress toward their degree. A student must maintain Standards of Academic Progress (SAP) in a course of study regardless of whether the student received financial aid or transferred in from another institution.
Standards of Academic Progress (SAP) at Seminole State will be monitored at the end of each term and must include the student's total academic history (Seminole State, Advanced Placement, dual enrollment, transient and transfer hours, regardless of the age of the credits). To receive federal aid, a student must be meeting SAP regardless of whether he or she previously received federal aid.
To be considered in good standing, a student must meet each of the following criteria when SAP is checked at the end of every semester:
|67 Percent Completion Chart for Successful Progression |
Toward a Degree or Eligible Certificate by Term (Pace)
Credit Hours Attempted
Earned Hours Needed
(passed with GPA of 2.0 or higher)
Students who fail to meet SAP requirements for the first time will be placed on Financial Aid Warning at the end of the semester in which they did not meet the standard(s). They will be eligible to receive federal financial aid funding for the following semester in order to have an opportunity to bring up their GPA and pace.
Students who do not meet SAP after this period of Financial Aid Warning will be denied eligibility for future semesters and placed on Financial Aid Suspension status until they meet the SAP standards or submit an SAP Appeal that is approved.
Currently enrolled students who are on a financial aid "Warning" status will be allowed to register for courses in future semesters but will not have financial aid available to them until after grades post for the current term in which they are enrolled. Once grades are assessed at the conclusion of the term, and financial aid eligibility is assessed, financial aid will be available to those students who meet the federal requirements.
Students who do not meet the SAP during the warning period will not be awarded federal financial aid until they meet SAP or submit an SAP Appeal that is approved. Students who submit an SAP Appeal that is approved will be placed on an Academic Plan. The student will continue receiving financial aid as long as he/she successfully complies with the prescribed Academic Plan requirements, meets SAP standards or graduates.
Academic Plans will be assigned only if the student has an approved SAP Appeal. The Academic Plan is designed to ensure that the student will be meeting SAP by a specific point in time. Seminole State’s Academic Plan requires that students:
As long as the student adheres to the Academic Plan outlined by the three conditions above, the student may remain on the Academic Plan until he or she re-establishes eligibility for financial aid. The student will not have to re-appeal each term.
Currently enrolled students who are on a financial aid Academic Plan will be allowed to register for courses in future semesters but will not have financial aid availble to them until after grades post for the current term in which they are enrolled. Once grades are assessed at the conclusion of the term, and financial aid eligibility is assessed, financial aid will be available to those students who meet the federal requirements.
A student may not change his or her program plan while under an Academic Plan.
If the student does not adhere to the Academic Plan (i.e., meet all three of the criteria above), the student will be placed on Financial Aid Suspension. As a result, the student will lose financial aid eligibility.
