Appeal Process

To appeal your denial of financial aid due to failure to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards, you must submit SAP Appeal form with a typed explanation of your academic situation and the reason(s) why you are not meeting SAP along with the required supporting documentation. All appeals will first be reviewed by a Financial Aid Advisor. If your appeal is denied by the Financial Aid Advisor, you may submit a request for second level review by the Financial Aid Office SAP Appeal Committee. The Committee’s decision is final and no additional appeals may be submitted beyond the second level review by the Committee.
