What's New


The Financial Aid Office has started a new Satisfactory Academic Progress Procedure.  Check it out

The policy has not changed, students still need to:  

  • Complete your program within 150% of the maximum time frame
    • AS, AA or transfer program within 90 units
    • Certificate programs within 30 units
  • Maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA
  • Successfully complete 67% of all attempted units

The new process is much simpler and we hope more students will be able to successfully complete it.   It is too late to appeal for Spring 2019 but keep an eye on those summer deadlines!


Summer 1 2019 SAP Appeal Deadline:  June 7 at 1:00pm

Summer 2 2019 Appeal Deadline:  July 19 at 1:00pm
