Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements for the Renewal of Financial Aid Resources

Graduate Students

In order to continue to receive financial aid, you must maintain satisfactory academic progress toward the completion of your degree program.

Satisfactory academic progress for federal aid recipients is evaluated at the end of spring semester each year. Students must maintain a 3.0 grade point average and complete two-thirds of credit hours attempted each year. In addition, loan eligibility for students with full-time-equivalent status is limited to a maximum of three semesters.

In some cases financial aid awards are made available to students prior to Satisfactory Academic Progress being reviewed. Awards made prior to this review process are subject to change if the student fails to meet the minimum requirements at that time. We will notify you of any changes at the time of the review and will remove any federal or university financial aid that has been awarded or disbursed to you.
