Financial Aid/Academic Warning

At the end of each semester, each student’s CGPA, rate of completion, and maximum timeframe are reviewed to determine whether the student is meeting the above Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements. Students who are not meeting the CGPA or pace of completion standards at the end of a semester will be placed on Financial Aid/Academic Warning for the next semester. Financial Aid/Academic Warning status is assigned to the student by the Academic Progress Office without the need for any appeal or further action by the student. All students placed on Financial Aid/Academic Warning will be notified via Goodwin College e-mail before the start of the next semester. Students with a status of Financial Aid/Academic Warning are eligible to continue to receive federal financial aid funds for one semester.

At the end of the semester during which the student was on Financial Aid/Academic Warning status, the institution will evaluate the student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress to determine if the student is meeting the minimum standards of SAP. Students on a Financial Aid/Academic Warning who raise their CGPA and rate of completion at or above the minimum SAP standards will be returned to good standing. If the student does not meet the minimum SAP requirements at the time of evaluation, the student is no longer eligible to receive federal financial aid funds, unless the student successfully appeals the determination and is placed on Financial Aid/Academic Probation. Students not meeting SAP requirements will be notified via Goodwin College e-mail before the beginning of the next semester.
