Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Financial aid recipients (both undergraduates and graduate students) must make satisfactory academic progress to maintain eligibility for financial aid. Fayetteville State University defines satisfactory academic progress in quantitative and qualitative terms. Students are evaluated for satisfactory academic progress at the end of the academic year (spring), at which time students must have earned at least 67% of their attempted hours with a minimum GPA of 2.0 for an undergraduate student and a minimum GPA of 3.0 for a graduate student.

Students whose total of attempted hours (including all transfer hours) exceeds 180 for an undergraduate student and 54 for a graduate student may re-enroll if their GPA is 2.0 or higher for an undergraduate student and 3.0 or higher for a graduate student. Keep in mind, they will be ineligible for financial aid without successfully appealing through the Academic Appeals Committee for a one time only approval of maximum hours. Students will be evaluated for financial aid eligibility at the end of the academic year (spring) and will be notified by the Academic Appeals Committee of their eligibility status. Students may appeal their financial aid eligibility by following the process delineated below in the section titled "Appeal Procedure".
