Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Status Types
Federal and state regulations require us to impose consequences when students do not maintain SAP. Below is a list of the possible consequences you may receive if you fail to make SAP in any given quarter, and/or in your overall cumulative time here at Edmonds College.
- Warning Status – When you fail to make SAP you are generally placed on Warning first. However, not all students are given a Warning, even when SAP problems occur for the first time. Use the chart below for exceptions to the assignment of Warning Status. Warning is a notice only. Access to aid for an upcoming quarter is not affected.
|Enrollment/Funded Status||Required Minimum Completion||Warning Status – complete:||Termination Status – complete:|
|Full-Time 12+ credits||12 credits||9-11 credits||8 or less credits|
|¾ Time 9-11 credits||9 credits||7-8 credits||6 or less credits|
|½ Time 6-8 credits||6 credits||5 credits||4 or less credits|
|<½ Time 1-5 credits||All Funded Credits||N/A||Less than all credits|
|Taking classes outside degree/certificate program||N/A||Termination Applied|
- Termination Status – This means your aid is cancelled. Termination happens if:
- You are on Warning and fail to make SAP
- We determine you are not making overall Pace
- You have a cumulative or college level GPA below a 2.0
- We determine that you cannot complete your degree within the Maximum Time Frame
- You take classes outside your degree program
- Probation Status – If you are on Termination and successfully petition to have your aid reinstated, you are reinstated to Probation for your next quarter.
- Ineligible Status – If you are Ineligible, you may not petition for reinstatement until you successfully
demonstrate that you are once again making SAP using your own resources. Ineligible
Status occurs when:
- You are on Probation and you fail to make SAP
- We determine that it is not mathematically possible, based on your overall academic record to raise your overall cumulative and college level GPA to at least a 2.0 within two quarters
- We determine that it is not mathematically possible to complete your degree within the 150% maximum time frame
