- Financial aid applicants must be reviewed by a separate Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standard that is established and regulated by the federal government. Students have the right to request a one-time, non-satisfactory academic progress waiver if they are denied financial aid consideration. If the financial aid recipient experiences extenuating circumstances that impacted their schoolwork, they have the right to appeal the decision. Reasons to appeal may involve, for example, a documented illness of a student. Only completed SAP Appeal Forms will be reviewed, incomplete forms will be returned to the student. Appeals must be made in writing with the Appeal Form* and must be based on extenuating circumstances. All appeals are reviewed by the SAP Appeal Committee and notification is sent within two weeks.
