An academic plan is a multi-semester guide which, in some cases, require
students to successfully complete a certain number of credits per semester, or
earn a specific semester GPA (or both) so as to meet SAP requirements by a
particular point in time. An academic plan is developed when:
- a student
successfully appeals Financial Aid Suspension and it is determined that
SAP requirements cannot be/will not be met at the end of one semester; or
- a student fails
to meet SAP at the end of their probationary period and successfully
appeals Financial Aid Suspension.
The academic plan must detail how the student will make up their
If deficient in completion
percentage (67% rule), the number of credits required for each future term to
eventually meet the 67% rule by the conclusion of the plan.
If deficient in GPA, the
minimum GPA required for each future term to eventually meet the minimum
cumulative GPA requirement by the conclusion of the plan.
If maximum number of terms
of eligibility has been reached, the number of additional future terms required
to complete degree requirements (in most cases, if
this exceeds two, the appeal will be denied).
