Standards for Academic Progress
There are three parts to the SAP rules:
- You must maintain a 2.0 cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA). This is includes all
course work you have taken at NWF State College or any college or university (this
includes college level classes taken during high school), regardless of whether or
not you received financial aid for those classes.
- You must successfully complete at least 67% of all of the classes in which you have
enrolled. This includes all the course work you have taken at NWF State College or
any college or university (this includes dual enrollment classes), regardless of whether
or not you received financial aid for those classes.
- You must not exceed the maximum time frame rule of attempting more than 150% of the credits required for your degree of certificate program.
You will not be eligible to receive financial aid once you have attempted more than 150% of the normal credits required for your degree or certificate program. For example, a student in a 60 credit hour program can attempt 90 credit hours (60 hours times 150%). An example of a Bachelor program is 120 credits; 150% of that program would be 180 credit hours. If you have questions about your program’s maximum eligibility, please contact Student Services or the Financial Aid Office. Notice: The total credits counted in this calculation include all credits attempted by you, regardless of whether you received financial aid for those classes. This includes those attempted from other schools, and those that might have been failed, withdrawn, or repeated. A student who has exceeded this standard is no longer eligible for financial aid whether or not items one or two (above) were met.
For more information, please review the Financial Aid Standards of Academic Progress.
If you feel that you had extenuating circumstances beyond your control that caused you to be unable to successfully meet federal financial aid standards, then you may take the following assessment to see if you are eligible to submit an appeal to the Financial Aid Office.
