Students not making SAP Two Quarters in a row will be automatically placed in one term of "Disqualification" status.
Disqualification Status Explanation
Disqualified – Unit Completion In the last quarter in which you attempted units, you did not earn the required number of units for your enrollment status. Since you were already on warning or probation status, you are now disqualified.
Disqualified – Quarterly GPA In the last quarter in which you attempted six or more units, you did not earn a 2.0 GPA for the quarter. Since you were already on warning or probation status, you are now disqualified.
Disqualified – Cumulative GPA At the end of the last quarter you did not have a 2.0 cumulative GPA. Since you were already on warning or probation status, you are now disqualified.
Disqualified – Maximum Time At the end of the last quarter the number of units you have attempted of higher education is at the end of the maximum time frame. If you have not earned your degree or certificate, and would like to appeal for additional time of aid eligibility, you must complete the Request for Extension process*. Students are considered one time only for appeals for extended time. No further appeals will be considered.
* Institutional Policies:
Disqualified – End of Extended Time You had previously reached the maximum time frame and were either granted additional time which has now run out, or denied additional time. Students are considered one time only for appeals for extended time. No further appeals will be considered.
Students in a disqualified status are not eligible for any federal or state aid including grants, loans, or work-study.
Students may appeal a disqualified status. Appeals** must examine the issues related to their inability to meet satisfactory progress requirements and outline steps they have taken to resolve, remedy, change, improve, or mitigate those issues. Students may be given a referral to meet with a counselor to create or update their Education Plan in order for their appeal to be considered. Students are notified by email whether an appeal is approved, denied or if further information is required.
Student Appeals for Extenuating Circumstance
Students may reinstate themselves to good standing by meeting all the satisfactory progress requirements in a future quarter within the maximum time frame.
At the start of the new quarter, Students who are in disqualification may have their financial aid delayed until their status can be determined.
* Requests for extensions are reviewed in the order they are received and may take up to 8 weeks to be processed.
**Appeals are reviewed in the order they are received and may take up to 4 weeks to be processed.
