All credits, including transfer credits, will be used in calculating quantitative components
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
1st Semester
2nd Semester
3rd Semester
4th Semester
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. Maximum Time 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.
