  The maximum timeframe is 150% of the program length.  When a student changes majors, all courses attempted will count for SAP. Federal aid will be suspended for students not achieving SAP.  A student with unusual circumstances may appeal this decision. The Appeals Form is posted on the NGU website.  A student may re-establish aid eligibility by meeting the SAP standard.
