Satisfactory Academic Progress

Satisfactory Academic Progress

The Maricopa Community Colleges follow Federal regulations (CFR 668(f) and 668,34) which require you to move towards the completion of a degree, or certificate of completion, within an eligible program when receiving financial aid. There are specific requirements, known as Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), for academic success for financial aid recipients and they are applied differently than Scholastic Standards.

It is very important that you meet all of these minimum standards while pursuing your educational goals with the support of financial aid. In the event you do not meet the minimum standards, it may result in loss of Title IV, HEA program (federal financial aid) eligibility. This policy affects all students that have, or will apply for financial aid. Federal regulations state that Academic Progress Standards must include a review of all periods of enrollment, regardless of whether or not aid was received.
