Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy

It is each individual student’s responsibility to read and adhere to the SAP policy. The policy is in place because the Higher Education Act of 1965 was amended with Program Integrity regulations passed on October 29, 2010 that mandates institutions of higher education to establish a standard of satisfactory academic progress for students who receive any Title IV federal financial aid. A student’s compliance with the Standards of Academic Progress policy is reviewed at the end of their first term of attendance and each semester thereafter whether or not Title IV funded aid was received. The financial aid SAP policy should not be confused with Probation or Good Standing as defined by Middle Georgia State University (MGA) academic policies
