Reinstatement of Aid after Student Loan Denied Status

Policy number: AD003EN
Last review date: 31 March 2018

Issuing office: Admissions & Financial Aid


Reinstatement of financial aid after a student is placed on Student Loan Denied status is achieved in one of the following ways: 

  • The student submits a written letter of appeal in accordance with the appeal process, and Financial Aid grants the appeal. The student is placed on Student Loan Probation for the semester/term rather than on Student Loan Denied status. Students whose attempted credits have exceeded 150% of their program cannot regain financial aid eligibility except through the appeals process and on a semester-by-semester basis. 
  • The student attends AUP and pays for tuition and fees without the help of student financial aid and does well enough in the course work to meet all the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards. The student regains aid eligibility with probationary status. Students on Student Loan Denied status for failure to meet the 150% requirement cannot regain eligibility this way


Who is affected by this policy: Students receiving Title IV aid, specifically Federal Stafford and PLUS loans.

Legal context or regulatory body: 34 CFR 668.16, 668.34 (SAP); Federal Student Aid Handbook Volume 1, Chapter 1


The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid works with The Office of the Registrar to evaluate a student’s SAP and notifies the student of changes to his/her student loan status (i.e. probation, denied). It evaluates letters of appeal and notifies students of decision in a timely manner.

Students understand this policy and meet SAP requirements.


Title IV: Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended in 1998, (Title IV, and HEA program) establishes general rules that apply to federal student financial assistance programs.
