Satisfactory Academic Progress
SECTION A-1 SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS
To receive federal aid, both undergraduate and graduate must make satisfactory academic progress. Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) will be checked after each spring semester.
Courses used in calculations as follows:
The maximum timeframe is no longer than 150% of the published program length. When a student changes majors, all courses attempted will count. Federal aid will be suspended for students not achieving SAP. A student may appeal this decision to the Admissions, Financial Aid, and Academic Standing Committee. If the appeal is approved, the student will be placed on Financial Aid probation for one semester. The Appeals Form may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office & should be returned to the NGU Academic Affairs Office. A student may re-establish aid eligibility by meeting the SAP standard.
