Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Holds & Alerts

SAP Holds Alerts

If you fall below the required SAP standards, you will be assigned one or more SAP warnings or holds.
 

Financial Aid Warning (FAW)

If you fail to meet the GPA and/or Pace standards at the end of a term, you will be assigned an FAW status for that term. You are not allowed consecutive warning terms. Students who have an FAW status:
  • Remain eligible to receive financial aid
  • May not register early for the next term and, therefore, must register after the current term has concluded and final grades have been posted
  • Are highly encouraged to meet with their Academic Advisor to select courses to prevent the FAH/SAP hold, i.e., courses which are needed for completion/graduation and in which the student can excel
If your GPA/Pace does not reach the minimum standard by the end of the warning (FAW) term, you will be placed on a Financial Aid/Satisfactory Academic Progress Hold (FAH SAP). You will have to submit an appeal and may have to commit to an SAP Academic Plan to re-establish eligibility.
 

SAP Hold (Financial Aid Hold) (FAH SAP)

If you fail to meet the GPA and/or Pace standards for consecutive terms, you will receive an SAP Hold (also referred to as FAH). Students with an FAH SAP hold:
  • Are ineligible to receive financial aid
  • Must submit an appeal and may be required to commit to an SAP Academic Plan to re-establish eligibility
    • If your appeal is successful, you will be placed on Financial Aid Probation (FAP) for the enrollment term. If you cannot meet the cumulative GPA and Pace standards by the end of that term, your status will be returned to SAP Hold
    • If your appeal is unsuccessful, you will lose financial aid eligibility. You will be allowed to continue your enrollment without financial aid if your GPA remains above Academic Exclude status. Those on SAP Hold who want to continue their enrollment without financial aid must successfully appeal and commit to a SAP Academic Plan if their cumulative GPA places them on Academic Exclude status. Academic Exclude status means that your cumulative GPA remains below the minimum cumulative GPA standard for two or more consecutive terms
 

Financial Aid Probation (FAP)

If your appeal is successful, you will be placed on the temporary status of Financial Aid Probation (FAP). Students with a FAP status:
  • May not register early for the next term and, therefore, must register after the current term has concluded and final grades have been posted
  • May be required to adhere to an established SAP Academic Plan
  • At the end of the probationary term:
    • If you meet the cumulative SAP standards, you will no longer have an FAH SAP hold and financial aid eligibility will be reinstated. No appeal is necessary
    • If you do not meet the cumulative SAP standards, you will receive an FAH SAP hold and must submit a new appeal to continue enrollment with financial aid
      • If your appeal is successful, your financial aid eligibility and FAP status may be continued for the following term
        • If you adhered to your SAP Academic Plan, then your financial aid eligibility may be restored after completing and signing a new appeal
        • On the other hand, you did not adhere to your SAP Academic Plan, then your appeal may not be successful
      • If your appeal is unsuccessful, you will lose financial aid eligibility. You may attempt to re-establish eligibility by attaining SAP standards without the use of financial aid at one of the City Colleges or by transferring credits from a non-CCC institution
 

Time Frame Alert (TFA)

If you are within 12 credit hours of your credit hour limit (CHL), you will receive a TFA status. Students with a TFA status may still be eligible for financial aid. You are strongly encouraged to meet with your Academic Advisor to ensure that you are making satisfactory progress toward completion of your academic degree/program within your allotted timeframe. If you reach or exceed your Credit Hour Limit (CHL), you will receive an SAP Hold.
 

SAP Hold Caused by Exceeded Credit Hour Limit (CHL)

If you receive an SAP Hold caused by exceeding your CHL, you will lose financial aid eligibility. You may appeal. If your appeal is successful, your financial aid eligibility may be temporarily extended.
