Graduate Students

SAP Requirements

  • Maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
  • Complete 67% of credits attempted. All attempted hours are counted, including transfer hours, classes from which a student withdrew after the add/drop period, and any failed classes. All classes are counted whether or not financial aid was received.

Maximum Time Limit

  • Students must complete their degree requirements within 150% of the published length of their academic program.
  • All attempted hours are counted, including transfer hours, whether or not financial aid was received.

Review and Notification, Regaining Eligibility and the Appeal Process

  • Review and Notification, Regaining Eligibility for Financial Aid and the Appeal Process is the same for graduate students as for undergraduates. Please see information above.

Special Grades

  • I (Incomplete): "I" grades do not count as earned credits or influence the grade point average in the semester in which the course work has been taken. However, an incomplete grade will count toward total attempted credits. Once the 'I' grade has been resolved and a passing grade has been earned, the credits and the grade will then be counted toward satisfying attempted grades that are completed, and the grade point average requirements.
  • W (Withdrawal): "W" grades do not count as earned credits or influence the grade point average. However, these credits will count toward total attempted credits and may affect a student's eligibility for financial aid.
  • P (Pass): If a "P" grade is earned, the credits will count toward satisfying attempted credits earned, but will not affect the student's grade point average.
