Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is a method used to define successful completion of coursework and to establish and maintain eligibility for financial aid loans, grants, and scholarships. Federal regulations require all colleges and universities to publish and apply standards to monitor students’ progress towards completion of their certificate or degree program. These regulations set minimum requirements but schools can choose their own acceptable thresholds. This means that SAP standards can vary from one institution to the next.
