Satisfactory Academic Progress
Q.: Is a school required to have an appeal process as part of its satisfactory academic progress (SAP) policy?
A.: No. A school is not required to have a process by which a student who is not meeting the school's SAP standards petitions the school for reconsideration of his or her eligibility for Title IV program funds.
If the school does not have an appeal process, the SAP policy must describe how the student may reestablish his or her eligibility to receive assistance under the Title IV programs.
