Satisfactory Academic Policy

​​​​​​​​​​Make Satisfactory Academic Progress 
If you want to keep receiving your federal student aid, make sure you stay eligible.

You'll need to continue to meet the basic eligibility criteria, make satisfactory academic progress, and fill out the FAFSA every year.  This means you must earn a minimum overall GPA and complete a minimum percentage of the classes you attempt.  You must also finish completing your degree or certificate within the maximum time frame allowable at your school.

2019-2020 Satisfactory Academic Policy

(Fall 2019 / Spring 2020 / Summer 2020) 

(Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Summer 2019)


What if you are disqualified from receiving Financial Aid?

Based on the SCC Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy standards, you may be given disqualification status which will prevent you from receiving financial aid funds for any of the following reasons:​
  • ​ Your GPA is below 2.0
  •  You have not completed at least 66.5% of the units you attempted
  •   Both of the above

 You may sign up for an Appeal Workshop to strategize how to re-qualify for Financial Aid. But first, you MUST receive a Notification to Appeal prior to signing up for the Appeal Workshop. You may also check your status by logging on to your WebAdvisor

Here are the dates of the upcoming appeal workshops.
