Determination of Progress Status
Students who meet the minimum requirements for attendance and academic performance are considered to be making satisfactory academic progress until their next scheduled evaluation. Students will meet with the Director at each evaluation period to discuss their status.
When a student fails to meet academic and/or attendance progress at the end of the evaluation period, they will be placed on Financial Aid Warning status but still be considered making satisfactory academic progress and eligible for Title IV funds. A student placed on Financial Aid Warning status will meet with the director to implement a plan to achieve satisfactory progress. If the student does not meet satisfactory academic and/or attendance progress by the next scheduled evaluation period, he/she will be terminated from the program.
Re-establishment of Satisfactory Academic Progress
Students may re-establish satisfactory academic progress by meeting minimum attendance and academic requirements by the end of the warning period.
Transfer hours from another institution will be accepted towards the student’s education and are counted as both attempted and completed hours for determining when the allowable maximum time-frame will be exhausted. SAP evaluations are based on actual contracted hours.
Noncredit and Remedial Courses
Noncredit and remedial courses do not apply to this school. Therefore, these items have no effect upon the school’s satisfactory academic progress policy.

- Failing to maintain 80% attendance
- Failing to maintain 70% cumulative grade point average
