Satisfactory Academic Progress for Federal Financial Aid

U.S. Department of Education regulations require that Benedictine College establish Satisfactory Academic Progress standards for federal and state financial aid recipients. Students receiving Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Federal Work Study, Federal Perkins Loans, any Direct Loan Programs, and/or other federal or state aid must meet the following standards to ensure that only those students demonstrating Satisfactory Academic Progress towards the completion of their educational programs continue to receive financial aid.

Students are required to remain in good standing in accordance with the academic standards stipulated in the College’s requirements for graduation, which are published in the College Course Catalog. Students disqualified by the College are ineligible for financial aid and subject to automatic cancellation of financial aid awards. Students are not eligible for financial aid until after an official re admittance to the College (via Registrar). Re-admitted students who previously failed to meet SAP must follow the SAP Appeal Process outlined here.
