To be eligible for federal financial aid, you must meet all of the following criteria:
Changes in Eligibility: Federal financial aid is awarded based on an estimate of your eligibility. The Office of Student Financial Aid may have to cancel or reduce financial aid before or after disbursement based on new information that becomes available after the time of awarding or disbursement.
Maintaining Eligibility: In addition to meeting the general requirements for applying for federal aid, students must also meet the requirements of the college's Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards. These standards, which comply with U.S. Department of Education regulations, are intended to establish minimum, reasonable levels of advancement toward degree completion and to guard against abuse of federal financial aid programs. Satisfactory progress requirements for receipt of federal financial aid are separate and distinct from the university's academic progress requirements for academic continuance.
