Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA)
For undergraduate students, Financial Assistance requires a 1.7 cumulative grade point average for the first 30 credit hours and a 2.0 cumulative grade point average for all hours beyond 30. For graduate students, Financial Assistance requires a 3.00 cumulative grade point average. These are the minimum GPA requirements as set by federal financial aid regulations. Any student falling below these required GPAs will be denied federal financial aid.
Students denied federal aid due to a low GPA may submit a Financial Assistance Appeal Form with the required documentation explaining the reasons for not meeting the minimum GPA requirement. In addition, if a student is academically suspended and federal aid is suspended for falling below the minimum GPA, but is re-admitted through the Readmissions Appeals Committee, federal aid will be reinstated as long as all other components of the SAP policy are met.
