Probation Status

A student in probation status has been granted such status by the SAP Committee in accordance with the section below entitled Re-Establishing Federal Financial Aid Eligibility.

Federal financial aid and veteran’s educational benefits are available to eligible students in probation status for one term, or longer, if the student meets the terms of an academic plan approved by the SAP Committee.

A student in probation status must have an academic plan with benchmarks approved by the SAP Committee.

  • If the student meets the conditions of the academic plan but has not returned to good standing, the student remains in probation status.
  • If the student meets the conditions of the academic plan and has not returned to good standing, but the academic plan has expired:
    • The student must submit a letter to the SAP Committee requesting a revised academic plan and the reasons for such request;
    • The SAP Committee may allow the student to continue in probation status with a revised academic plan with an extended end term.
  • If the student fails to meet the conditions of the academic plan, but successfully completed all courses for the term AND showed significant improvement in GPA:
    • The student must submit a letter to the SAP Committee requesting a revised academic plan and the reasons for such request;
    • The SAP Committee may allow the student to continue in probation status with a revised academic plan with the same plan end term as the current academic plan OR allow the student to continue in probation status with a revised academic plan with an extended end term. (A student’s academic plan may be revised only once until returning to good standing).
  • If the student fails to return to good standing, fails to meet the conditions of the academic plan, did not successfully complete all courses for the term AND/OR shows no significant improvement, the student will be returned to suspension status and not eligible to receive federal financial aid.
