Students who meet the minimum quantitative (attendance) and qualitative (academic) requirements will be considered to be making satisfactory academic progress until the next scheduled evaluation. Students found to not be maintaining minimum SAP requirements will be subject to the following.

- A student who is on Financial Aid Warning and fails to meet SAP requirements or the next evaluation is considered to not be in SAP and loses their Financial Aid eligibility. The student is allowed to appeal their ineligible status by submitting and appeal letter to the school Director that explains why the student did not meet SAP requirements on the basis of: his/her injury or illness, the death of a relative, or other special circumstances. The appeal must explain why he/she failed to make satisfactory progress at the next evaluation. If, through the appeal process; it is determined that the student should be able to meet the minimum SAP requirements by the end of the subsequent payment period the student will be placed on Financial Aid Probation, is considered to be in SAP and is eligible to receive Financial Aid for the subsequent payment period.
- A student who is on Financial Aid Probation and fails to meet SAP requirements for the next evaluation is considered to not be in SAP and loses their Financial Aid eligibility.
