Return to Academic Requirements for Financial Aid (SAP Policy)

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy

To remain eligible to receive federal student aid, students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards as defined by current federal regulations which require that academic progress be monitored for all periods of enrollment whether or not students have received financial aid.

Federal regulations require that we measure academic progress towards completion of a degree/certificate program by federal, state, and school standards.  Recipients of student loans are subject to these standards for renewal of their financial aid eligibility.

  • SAP evaluation is based on cumulative Holy Apostles course work as appears on the student’s official academic transcripts as well as all accepted transfer credits.
  • The review of academic progress will take place at the conclusion of each academic year for all students, however for those receiving financial aid this review will be conducted at the conclusion of each semester.
  • Students taking classes during the summer session following the academic year will be reviewed at the conclusion of the summer semester.
