To maintain eligibility for financial aid, students must be making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) as defined by federal, state and Swedish Institute policy. SAP is defined qualitatively as maintaining an acceptable grade point average. It is defined quantitatively as pursuing the program at a sufficient pace. Courses that students attempt but fail to complete either through academic failure or withdrawal, count against the quantitative standard. Students may lose financial aid eligibility if they fail to complete the program after attempting 150% of the program credits.
Federal and New York State satisfactory progress standards are explained in detail in the Academic Policies section of this catalog
