Satisfactory Academic Progress
Academic success is required to maintain eligibility for grants, federal workstudy, and student loans.
- Overall GPA of 2.0
- Earn at least 67% of units you attempt each semester.
- Earn at least 67% of units you accept overall.
- Complete educational goal within maximum timeframe
How is pace calculated?
Pace is calculated by dividing the number of units earned by number of units attempted.
Example: Student attempted 12 units in fall semester and successfully completed 8 units. To calculate term pace: Divide 8 (units completed) by 12 (units attempted). Student completed 66.67% of courses attempted, which is below 67%. Student was required to complete 8.5 units, which calculates term pace of 70.83%.
Complete Educational Goal Within Maximum Timeframe
Financial Aid students are required to have an educational goal of certificate, associate degree or transfer program to be awarded aid.
Completing educational goal in a reasonable amount of time is essential, given lifetime limits of Pell Grant and limits on Subsidized Loans. Students who don’t complete their educational goal within the maximum timeframe are considered “overunits” and not eligible for aid.
Students with extenuating circumstances may submit an Education Plan and Request for Extension for consideration.
