Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy

A student must make satisfactory academic progress toward the completion of their academic program to be eligible for federal, state and institutional aid, and the institution must have a reasonable policy for monitoring that progress.

Simspon Technical College Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships reviews each student’s satisfactory academic progress at the end of each payment period after grades have been posted.

All students, including those who have transfer credits, are required to meet three measures of academic progress in order to maintain eligibility for federal financial aid which includes grants, loans and work-study. The three requirements are:

  1. Maintain a cumulative academic grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0; and

  2. Successfully complete at least 67% of credits attempted; and

  3. Complete a certificate or degree within 150% of the published length of the program.

Students must meet all of the SAP requirements listed above to be eligible to receive federal financial aid. If the requirements are not met, students will be notified via certified mail.
