If you receive financial aid at La Salle University, federal rules require us to monitor your progress toward completing a degree or certificate. They also require us to establish a Satisfactory Academic Progress policy that describes what you must do to continue receiving financial aid.
Our SAP policy has three parts. You must satisfy all three to continue receiving financial aid:
We measure your academic progress each year after spring semester. This calculation determines whether your financial aid is renewable for the following academic year.
If you fail to make Satisfactory Academic Progress, you have two options to regain financial aid eligibility:
If there were extenuating circumstances, complete the Academic Progress Appeal form on the Financial Aid Forms page. Be sure to include documentation when you submit it to the Financial Aid Office.
If the committee that considers your appeal approves it, you get financial aid for one semester. If you don’t make SAP by the end of this probationary period, you lose your aid.
In figuring your completion rate under La Salle’s Satisfactory Academic Progress policy, we examine your attempted and earned credits. How do we define them?
Attempted credits include:
Attempted credits do not include audited, non-credit courses.
Earned credits are all credits earned toward completion of your certificate or degree, including:
Earned credits do not include classes where you earned a grade of incomplete, failed, withdrew, or audited.
