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.
