Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
What is SAP? SAP is Satisfactory Academic Progress and is a measure of your cumulative GPA and successful completion of classes.
Undergraduate students: you must maintain a 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA or higher and complete 67% or more of your classes.
- Graduate students: you must maintain a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA or higher and complete 67% or more of your classes.
What is SAP completion rate?
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) completion rate is a measurement of the number of classes attempted versus the number completed. For example: you enroll in a class then a month into the class, you drop it. This means you attempted a course but did not complete it. Each time this occurs your completion rate decreases.
When is SAP calculated?
SAP is calculated at the end of each semester. All students will be reviewed at the end of the Spring semester. Students whose SAP needs attention will receive an email notification to their Stetson University email address.
What happens if I don't meet the standards?
The first time you don't meet the SAP standards, you are placed on a warning. This warning gives you one semester to meet the standards again.
If at the end of the warning period, you are still not meeting the standards your financial aid will go on suspension and you will be offered the chance to submit a SAP appeal.
Can I get my aid back?
Yes, there are 2 ways in which you may receive your aid again. First, by successfully completing your classes, achieving the completion rate and obtaining a 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA. Second, if your SAP appeal is approved, your aid will be reinstated according to the terms of the approved appeal.
