Does the SAP policy relate to my academic standing?

How does academic forgiveness affect SAP?

How do my transfer credits affect my SAP standing?
Transfer credits are included in your total cumulative GPA, and count toward the maximum time to complete a degree standard. Transfer credits do not count towards the pace of progression requirement.
How are repeated courses evaluated for SAP?
Each semester the student repeats a course, it is counted as credit hours attempted. Repeated course hours are counted as completed the first time the course is passed. Other times the course is taken, the hours are counted as attempted but not completed, which negatively affects your pace of progression.
Am I eligible for a Private Education Loan if I'm not meeting SAP standards?
The financial aid programs impacted by SAP include, but are not limited to, all federal, state, and institutional aid, and private education loans. However, if you complete an appeal and your appeal is denied, you may explore private education loan options to pay your university bill. You must check with private lenders to determine if they offer loans to students not meeting SAP requirements.
