CCSJ Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

Federal legislation governing all federal financial aid programs requires that students receiving federal financial aid make satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward a degree in order to maintain eligibility for this aid.  It is the policy of Calumet College of St. Joseph that all recipients of all financial aid programs, including state and institutionally funded programs, are subject to the same satisfactory academic progress standards as those for federal financial aid.

Satisfactory academic progress at CCSJ is monitored at the end of each semester.  The Minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) Standard, Percentage of Credits Completed Standard, and Maximum Time Frame Standard are reviewed based on all classes in all semesters taken at CCSJ, and all accepted transfer credits from regionally accredited colleges and universities. (Please note: SAP standards are the minimum criteria for maintaining financial aid eligibility. Certain forms of financial aid may carry other requirements for renewal.)
