Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards (SAP)

Suspension Status

If on probation status or warning status and after one subsequent term, you fail to meet any of the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards for financial aid, you will be placed on suspension status and be denied financial aid. Students receiving a zero completion rate in any term will also be immediately suspended.

The Financial Aid office will notify you of your suspension status via your Hawkeye email and of the appeal process you may complete in order to see if your financial aid eligibility will be reinstated.

If the grade that caused you to go onto suspension status was in error or submitted late, your suspension status may be lifted. If you feel your suspension status is an error or submitted late, complete the Satisfactory Progress Suspension Review Request form [pdf] and return it to the Financial Aid office.

While on suspension status you are not eligible to receive financial aid.
