of SAP. Transfer credits are entered on the student’s record and will be considered in the
attempted credits. SAP requirements are measured in the following three areas:
01. GPA (Qualitative): In order to meet the grade point average requirements, a student will
need to have an academic standing consistent with the requirement for graduation from the
program at the end of the first, second and third semesters. At the end of the 4th semester
of attendance the student MUST have a cumulative GPA of C (2.0) or better. Below is a chart
that illustrates the academic requirements.
Minimum Cumulative GPA Required
02. Credits Attempted (Quantitative): All students must complete two-thirds (66.67%) of the
credits they attempt. This percentage will be calculated cumulatively each semester. The
percentage is determined by dividing the total number of successfully completed credits by
the total number of credits the student was registered for on the LRSC FA Census Date. The
cumulative credits calculations include all credits attempted even if they do not pertain to
the current degree.
03. MaximumTime Frame (Quantitative): All students must complete their declared program
within 150% of the published length of the program. A student who has attempted 140% of
their program credits will be receive a letter advising them they are reaching the maximum
credits. i.e., if the program of study requires 60 credits to graduate then 90 is the maximum
number of attempted credits allowed for a program. When the student has attempted 140%
or 84 credits they would receive a warning notice. Students who have attempted 150% of
their program credits will be suspended from financial aid and will be notified by letter.
Financial Aid Warning: Financial Aid Warning status is assigned to a student who fails to
meet one or more of the SAP measures indicated above at the conclusion of the semester.
A student assigned a Financial Aid Warning will be notified in writing. The student may
continue to receive financial aid for one subsequent semester under this status despite the
determination that the student is not making SAP.
Financial Aid Disqualification: Financial Aid Disqualification status is assigned to a student
who fails to make SAP or does not fulfill the requirements set forth in his or her academic
plan of study when placed on Financial Aid Probation. A student who is placed on Financial
Aid Suspension may only receive financial aid if the student reestablishes eligibility by
meeting the standards set forth in this policy.
Financial Aid Probation: Financial Aid Probation status is assigned to a student who has
been placed on FA Disqualification and who has successfully appealed and has had eligibility
for financial aid reinstated. A student who is placed on Financial Aid Probation may receive
financial aid for one subsequent semester. They may be required to meet certain terms
and conditions while on financial aid probation, such as taking a reduced course load or
taking specific courses. A student assigned a Financial Aid Probation status will be required
to submit an Academic Plan of Study, signed by an advisor. At the conclusion of the FA
Probation period, the student must either meet the SAP standards or fulfill the requirements
specified in the SAP Academic Plan of Study.
