Chicago State University’s Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy
measures whether students are progressing at a reasonable rate toward the completion
of their educational objectives. The Policy contains both qualitative (GPA) and quantitative
(course completion rate and maximum time-frame for completion of educational objective)
measurements. Students must be in compliance with the Policy in order to maintain
continuing financial aid eligibility. If you are not in compliance with the Policy
you may petition to have financial aid eligibility reinstated (start the process by
downloading the "Appeal" form below). Students must document mitigating circumstances
which contributed to them becoming in violation of the Policy.
You may view and download the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy.
The SAP Policy may also be reviewed in the Undergraduate Catalog or Graduate Catalog.
