Approved Appeals

If your appeal is approved, you will be placed on “Probation with Appeal” and expected to follow your Financial Aid Student Success Plan as implemented by Financial Aid Office until the completion of current program of study or expiration of the Plan.

Students that fail to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress during the probationary semester or as designated in the Financial Aid Student Success Plan, may be denied for future financial aid. At this point, students may be referred to the Satisfactory Academic Appeals Committee. The Satisfactory Academic Appeals Committee (SAP Committee) will review the appeal and documentation to determine whether or not students’ financial aid eligibility will be reinstated. Students will be able to view the decision on their Self-Service account under Financial Aid Information. Submission of an appeal does not guarantee reinstatement of eligibility for financial aid. Each appeal is reviewed on a case by case basis. Paying out of pocket for classes or sitting out a semester is not grounds for reinstatement of aid. Students must bring their academic progress back into compliance or have an appeal approved to have aid reinstated.

Subsequent appeals may be requested for consideration but you will not be allowed to submit it for the same issue that led to the first appeal, such as the same medical condition. A student must have very unusual circumstances to warrant a second appeal.
