Satisfactory Academic Progress
Chicago State University’s Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy measures whether students are progressing at a reasonable rate toward the completion of their educational objectives. The Policy contains both qualitative (GPA) and quantitative (course completion rate and maximum time-frame for completion of educational objective) measurements. Students must be in compliance with the Policy in order to maintain continuing financial aid eligibility. If you are not in compliance with the Policy you may petition to have financial aid eligibility reinstated. Students must document mitigating circumstances which contributed to them becoming in violation of the Policy.

The SAP Policy may be reviewed in the Undergraduate Catalog or Graduate Catalog.
