Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy
Students must meet a qualitative standard of academic progress measured through grade point average. Freshmen (0-29 earned hours) – must maintain a 1.60 cumulative GPA. Sophomores (30-59 earned hours) – must maintain a 1.8 cumulative GPA. Juniors and Seniors (60+ earned hours) – must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA. Graduate students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.5.
Students must meet a quantitative standard of academic progress measured by a percentage completion rate. Students must successfully complete 70% of all attempted credit hours. The calculation is made as follows: earned credit hours/attempted credit hours = completion rate. Courses with grades of “W”, “WP”, “WF” “I”, “F”, “FI” , “N” and courses taken under the WLU class repeat regulations are included in attempted credit hours but are not included in earned credit hours. All credit, including transfer work, included on the student’s academic transcript is also included.
Maximum Time Frame for Degree Completion
Financial Aid Probation
Probation status for financial aid purposes will be assigned to a student who has failed to meet SAP requirements and who has had their SAP appeal granted. A student on financial aid probation may receive financial aid for one enrollment period. At the end of the probation period the student must meet SAP standards, failure to do so will result in the student being ineligible for federal aid.
