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:
1. GPA
-
In order to meet the grade
point average requirements, a student will
need 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 fourth
semester of attendance the student MUST
have a cumulative GPA of C (2.0) or better.
Below is a table that illustrates the academic
requirements.

4th
2.00
2. Credits Attempted
-
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
calculation includes all credits attempted
even if they do not pertain to the current
degree.
3. Maximum Time Frame
-
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 receive
a letter advising them they are reaching
the maximum credits. i.e., if the program of
student requires 60 credits to graduate than
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.
