Maintain Your Financial Aid

Federal regulations require students who receive financial aid to meet a set of standards identified for Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress.

Please review Austin Community College's official policy on Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) (PDF); Progreso Académico Satisfactorio (SAP) en Español (PDF).

The following information is presented to help you determine, track, maintain, and repair if needed the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) component of your financial aid eligibility status.

Determination of academic progress

Your Satisfactory Academic Progress status is determined when you apply for financial aid. It is based on all previous academic history. Once you receive aid, your academic progress is evaluated at the end of every semester.
