• Tax Filers

    If you are required to submit documentation for verification (check your To-Do List), here are some useful tips to help you – The US Department of Education has announced that you may now submit a signed paper copy of the 2015 IRS tax return for verification documentation.

    This is effective for both the 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 verification requirements.

  • For Non-Filers

    Students who have not filed taxes, you must provide a signed statement certifying that you have not filed and are not required to file a 2015 income tax return, as well as a document listing the amount and sources of any income from that year. You must also submit a copy of your W-2 for any source of employment from that year.

  • Check Your To-Do List

    Check your To-Do List on myFSU to complete your Verification documents.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

Academic Requirements

All students must maintain SAP standards and be in academic good standing with Florida State University in order to be eligible to receive financial aid. Undergraduate, Graduate, Medical, and Law students have different Academic Requirements, so make sure to review your specific requirements.

SAP reviews Qualitative Standard (minimum GPA standards), Quantitative Standard (the number of hours had depending on how many degrees you are pursuing), and Percentage Completed (at least 70% of credits attempted must be completed).

View your degree level (Undergraduate, Graduate, Medical, or Law) to view your degree standards.

Federal regulation (34 CFR 668.34) requires that schools establish a Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirement establishing maximum number of hours allowable to achieve the degree program sought, and minimum progress requirements for continued financial aid eligibility. Florida State University evaluates Satisfactory Academic Progress for financial aid purposes annually.
