Students Receiving Student Financial Aid Funds

The Financial Aid Office will utilize the College’s Academic Standing Policy. In addition, full-time and part-time (undergraduate and graduate) students must complete at least 70 percent of the semester credit hours for which they enrolled to be making satisfactory progress. Any class that appears on the academic transcript as “graded” will be counted toward total credit hours enrolled.

Transcript grades include the following:

A, A- Excellent I Incomplete CR Credit
B+, B, B- Above Average T Temporary NC No Credit
C+, C, C- Average W Withdrawn X Repeat
D+, D, D- Poor WF Withdrawn failing R Repeated
F Failure UW Unofficial withdrawal AU Audit [no credit]

Additionally, once a student attains sophomore or second-year status, (28 earned hours and above), the student must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0.

If satisfactory progress requirements are not met, the student will be determined ineligible to receive Title IV student financial aid funds.

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) Program will be reviewed for compliance with the Satisfactory Progress Policy using grade equivalencies. Grades of “EX” (Exceeds Project Standards) are regarded as equivalent to “A” level work; grades of “M” (Meets Project Standards) are regarded as equivalent to “B” or “C” level work; grades of “DN” (Does Not Meet Project Standards) are regarded as equivalent to “D” or “F” level work. Grades of “EX” and “M” will be counted as credit hours completed while grades of “DN” will not be counted as credit hours completed.
