Satisfactory Academic Progress
In order to remain eligible for assistance, financial aid applicants must meet the standards of academic progress established in accordance with federal regulations.
Graduate students must have at least a 2.70 cumulative grade point average (GPA) to receive federal financial aid and scholarships.
At the end of the FALL semester, warning letters are sent by Questrom Graduate Financial Aid to each student reminding them that they must meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirement by the end of the SPRING semester or they will not be eligible for federal financial in future semesters. The Faculty Program Development Committee (PDC) will review and decide who is placed on academic probation/dismissal.
For program specific information pertaining to academic progress please refer to your program handbooks.
Students with significant and documented extenuating circumstances may appeal to regain aid eligibility. Appeals must be in writing and must explain why the student has not made the SAP requirement and what has changed to allow them to successful by the next SAP evaluation. Appeals are approved or denied on a case by case basis.
If approved the student will receive ONE probationary semester with financial aid.
