Students who fail to meet the minimum 2.00 cumulative grade point average standard, OR who fail to complete at least two-thirds of cumulative credits attempted, will be placed on Student Loan Probation for the subsequent semesters of enrollment until the next evaluation of Satisfactory Academic Progress (January and June). Student loans can be received during the semester of probation. Student loan disbursements for the next period of enrollment will be held until the grades and course completions have been reviewed for the semester of Student Loan Probation. 


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.
