What is the minimum GPA requirement to keep your financial aid?

Satisfactory Academic Progress is defined as a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 for all undergraduate students, and minimum credit hour completion rate of 66.6% for both undergraduate and graduate students.

Students who are unable to keep their cumulative GPA above a 2.0 each semester are in danger of losing their future financial aid.

We offer an appeal process where students can submit an explanation to our office showing us why they fell below the minimum GPA and how they have made progress since then. If they can show us that they are making progress, we can put them on a probationary status through the next semester to allow them to get their GPA above a 2.0 or their competition rate above 66.6%. If the appeal is approved, students would be able to receive financial aid for the next semester.
