Financial Aid Suspension Appeal Process

Students who have failed to meet all requirements of the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy due to documented extenuating circumstances may qualify to submit a financial aid suspension appeal. An appeal represents a formal request to have one’s loss of financial aid eligibility re-evaluated based on unusual circumstances that resulted in unsatisfactory academic performance. The SAP Appeal Committee will evaluate each appeal on a case-by-case basis.

Examples of Extenuating Circumstances

  • Severe illness/injury to self or immediate family member
  • Death of an immediate family member
  • Other mitigating circumstances
  • Separation/divorce for self or parents
  • Military reassignment
