Academic progress is reviewed by the Financial Aid Deparment at the end of each semester. Your semester progress and cumulative progress is evaluated. You must meet SAP standards for the semester, as well as in your academic career (cumulative).
After the first semseter of not meeting SAP standards, you will be placed on Financial Aid Warning Status. You are still eligible for federal financial aid in Warning Status.
If you fail to meet SAP standards after Warning Status, or if you reach the Maximum Time Frame, you will be placed on Financial Aid Suspension Status. You are not eligible for federal financial aid with Suspension Status.
If you have been placed on Financial Aid Suspension status, you may appeal the status with an SAP Appeal. The Financial Aid Department will review your appeal, and notifiy you of the approval or rejection of the appeal via your United Tribes email. Appeals are for students who feel they were not able to meet SAP standards in the last semester due to circumstances outside of their control. The Financial Aid Department’s decision is final.
You must complete the form, and submit all supporting documents to the Financial Aid Department. If your appeal is approved, you will be required to meet with your academic advisor and create an academic plan for the coming semester.
