U.S. federal regulations for financial aid and veteran education benefits require anyone receiving these benefits to
meet certain academic standards. At Madison College, these academic standards are referred to as Satisfactory
Academic Progress (SAP). These standards include a cumulative 2.0 GPA, a cumulative completion rate of 67%, and
program completion within 150% of the credits required to graduate (Maximum Attempted Credits). SAP is evaluated
at the end of each term and is calculated using all credits attempted. If you fail to meet SAP standards, you are no
longer eligible for financial aid and veterans education benefits (if applicable). All ineligible students receive a
message outlining which standards were not met. The SAP Appeal form below outlines the options to appeal.
