Satisfactory Academic Progress
Federal regulations require that financial aid recipients maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) in order to remain eligible for Federal Financial Aid. SAP standards
are also required for state aid (i.e., Kansas Comprehensive Grant), all Washburn scholarships and some private loans.
To meet Satisfactory Academic Progress standards, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 to be on track to complete their degree.
A grade review will determine the Satisfactory Academic Progress status of students receiving financial aid. This is done at the end of each Fall, Spring and Summer semester. Students may check their SAP status in MyWashburn, through the Financial Aid menu. If a student does not meet SAP, they may appeal for reinstatement of aid.
