Financial Aid Academic Progress

The University of Northern Iowa has established requirements of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) that all students must meet in order to be eligible for financial aid. The financial aid programs affected include, but are not limited to, all federal, state, and institutional aid, and private education loans. Financial Aid SAP is reviewed on an annual basis following the conclusion of the spring semester. Students not meeting the requirements described below at the time of review will be placed on Financial Aid Suspension and MUST appeal to have their aid reinstated for upcoming semesters at UNI. Please see below for more information.
