What is Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)?
Satisfactory Academic Progress is a federal requirement students must meet to receive both federal & state financial aid.
A student who is meeting SAP will have:
- A 2.0 Grade Point Average or above
- A sixty-seven percent (67%) completion rate between hours attempted & hours you have actually completed
- No more than ninety-nine (99) attempted hours of college level courses
In addition to the Federal Satisfactory Academic Progress policy, all students applying for financial aid are responsible for complying with the Alamo College's SAP Policy.
