Satisfactory Academic Progress

Students applying for and those receiving Federal, State and HCC financial aid are required to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward their degree.

Students must meet ALL of the following minimum standards:

  • Maintain a cumulative 2.00 Grade Point Average (GPA) each semester, and
  • Complete 67% of your credit hours attempted, and
  • Complete your degree within the 150% timeframe (i.e. an associate degree of 60 credit hours must be completed within 90 credit hours)

For additional SAP information, please select the criteria that applies to you and additional information will drop down. We encourage all students with questions about SAP to schedule an appointment to speak with a Financial Aid Counselor.
