Understanding Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)


To receive funds administered by the Financial Aid Office at the State College of Florida, Federal Regulations require that students must be making progress toward completion of an eligible degree or certificate program at a reasonable rate.
All three of the following cumulative requirements must be met each term, or the student will not be eligible for financial aid:
  • a. Minimum Cumulative Financial Aid GPA (Financial Aid GPA is a cumulative GPA of all courses on your transcript, including remedial coursework. This is not the same as the academic GPA.)
  • b. Completion Ratio (Pace)
  • c. Maximum Time Frame.

These standards for satisfactory academic progress reflect any student who is receiving financial aid and working toward a degree or certificate. For more information about the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), please refer to the forms below:
