Satisfactory Academic Progress
What does SAP stand for?
LACCD students must meet the SAP Policy detailed within the links below to be eligible to receive financial aid at any of the 9 campuses within the District. Students receiving financial aid enter into an agreement to make Satisfactory Academic Progress toward their educational goal. Failure to maintain these standards will result in the loss of financial assistance.
You May Be Required To Return All Or A Portion Of Your Financial Aid Disbursement If:
- You completed the semester with ALL non-passing grades (any combination of F's, W's and NP's).
- You dropped your classes.
- You were administratively excluded from your classes.
Summer and Winter Financial Aid
Summer and Winter terms are included in the evaluation of Satisfactory Academic Progress standards.
Eligibility and enrollment status for retaking coursework
34 CFR 668.(b)
The regulatory definition for full-time enrollment status (for undergraduates) has been revised to allow a student to retake (one time only per previously passed course) any previously passed course. For this purpose, passed means any grade higher than an "F", regardless of any school or program policy requiring a higher qualitative grade or measure to have ben considered to have passed the course. This retaken class may be counted towards a student's enrollment status, and the student may be awarded Title IV aid for the enrollment status based on the inclusion of the class.
