Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is a federal regulation that requires financial aid applicants to be evaluated on a qualitative standard (cumulative GPA) and quantitative standards (completion rate/pace and maximum time frame) every year.

All periods of enrollment at Southwestern College and transferable units from other colleges (determined from official transcripts on file at SWC) will be included as part of the SAP review. 

Financial Aid SAP standards are separate and distinct from general academic policies, and apply only to financial aid applicants.

For academic policies, please refer to the General Catalog or review this information with your counselor.
