The U.S. Department of Education requires institutions of higher learning to establish standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for students receiving Financial Aid. Students must declare a major and working towards the completion of that major to receive Financial Aid. Failure to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) will result in the loss of federal and state aid after the probationary terms.
This SAP policy applies to all students regardless of status, e.g., fill-time, part-time, undergraduate and education programs established by Atlanta Technical College. To receive aid, a student must be making SAP regardless of whether he or she has previously received aid. NOTE: New students and/or transfer students are making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
Students who wish to receive Financial Aid from Atlanta Technical College must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress, as outlined below.
Students are responsible for maintaining an acceptable level of progress regarding quality, quantity, and time frame of work. Satisfactory Academic Progress will be reviewed at the end of every semester. Records are reviewed after grades are posted at the end of each semester.
