How Probation Impacts Financial Aid

Being placed on academic probation means that your current cumulative grade point average (GPA) is below the university’s required minimum of 2.0 (undergraduate) or 3.0 (graduate).

While on probation, you are still eligible to receive financial aid. However, if your GPA also falls below the university’s guidelines for maintaining satisfactory academic progress (SAP), you may become ineligible for Federal Student Aid (FSA).

For more information on SAP and FSA eligibility, read the university’s SAP policy, or contact the university’s financial aid office at [email protected] or 877-755-2787 (Mon – Thurs 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET; Fri 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET).
