Satisfactory Academic Progress

THIS POLICY APPLIES TO ALL STUDENTS, NOT JUST THOSE RECEIVING FEDERAL FINANCIAL AID

Federal Regulations (General Provision CFR 668.16 and 668.34) require Goodwin College's Office of Student Financial Aid to review the academic progress of students who apply for and/or receive title IV financial aid. This regulation applies to each financial aid applicant, whether a previous recipient or not.

Please note: Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) evaluations cannot take place until final grades have been posted each semester. Therefore, any financial assistance awarded prior to the academic evaluation is subject to cancellation if the minimum SAP standards are not met.

All students must maintain satisfactory academic progress achieve minimum academic standards, progress at a satisfactory rate toward program completion, and complete the program of study within the maximum time frame in order to remain enrolled in the college. Additionally, students receiving federal financial aid must meet SAP standards to remain eligible for title IV program funds. Satisfactory academic progress is determined by measuring the student's cumulative grade point average (CGPA) in their current academic program and the student's rate of progress toward completion of his/her academic program. Students must complete all requirements for graduation within the maximum time frame and have a CGPA of 2.0 or higher. This applies to all students, not just those receiving Federal financial aid.
