Financial Aid and SAP

Financial Aid and SAP (Satisfactory Academic Progress)

Federal regulations and CSU-Global policy require that students who are receiving federal financial aid (FA) must make academic progress as defined by the Academic Expectations Policies https://csuglobal.edu/student-policies/academic-expectations-policies/ 

Failure to make good academic progress while in SAP Warning may result in a students eligibility for FA to be suspended. When a student becomes ineligible for FA due to the SAP policy, they may be able regain eligibility by a successful appeal based on an extenuating circumstance that occurred during the timeframe stated in their SAP Warning.

**It is important to note students will most likely need to seek alternative financing options during the SAP Probation timeframe such as paying out of pocket or with a non-federal loan. Upon return to good academic standing students may resume FA eligibility.
