Watch the video below to learn how to maintain compliance with the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy for Financial Aid Recipients. The video also explains how students who are non-compliant with the SAP policy may appeal for reinstatement of financial aid eligibility.
Please visit the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) section on our Important Forms page for all required forms.
The federal and state governments require each educational institution to define standards of progress for students seeking financial aid. All students who wish to qualify for financial aid while attending UNCG must meet the following standards:
These standards are applied uniformly to all UNCG financial aid applicants. Students who meet these standards may be eligible for financial aid. If a student does not meet these standards, they are not eligible to receive financial aid. Procedures for re-establishing financial aid eligibility are described in the SAP Policy.
Financial aid is defined as all federally-funded aid programs, state-funded student assistance programs and institutional aid (except as otherwise noted).
In the policy, "eligible for financial aid" means that a student meets the standards of the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy for Financial Aid Eligibility but must also meet all other financial aid requirements in order to receive financial aid.
