Students who are not making Satisfactory Academic Progress may file a written appeal to the Financial Aid Office. Appeals will then go before a committee for review. All students will be notified of the committee’s decision in writing. Appeals should include all documentation which supports any mitigating circumstances concerning the failure to maintain the expected level of satisfactory progress. Please indicate what has changed that would allow you to regain compliance to SFA Satisfactory Progress standards and include a plan of action to bring up your GPA or course completion rate. Students seeking appeals due to the maximum allowed hours for a degree program should include documentation from their academic advisor that includes the total number of hours required for their degree program and the number of hours remaining to satisfy the degree requirements. Students who have their appeal approved are expected to actively use university tutorial programs to assist in improving their academic performance.
