Good News for Students on Financial Aid Suspension

Starting with the Fall 2020 semester, if your Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) status is Suspension, you have the option to request an appeal.

How will it work?

To submit an appeal, you will need to download the SAP Appeals Form from our website. You will use the form to document factors that may have affected your performance. You will also need to explain how you will be successful moving forward.

A decision on your appeal will be made within the semester, and you will be notified. All appeal decisions are final.

What important details do I need to know?

Appeal documentation must include your circumstances and how you will improve.

Some of the factors that will be considered include:

  • active duty service or other services in the United States Armed Forces or Texas National Guard
  • personal illness
  • undisclosed disability
  • injury/accident
  • death of an immediate family member
  • natural disaster
  • state or local emergency

Be aware that you can only appeal if you are able to meet a Warning or OK status by the end of the current semester.

Will I be dropped from my classes?

A protection block will be applied to your account during this process to prevent deregistration.

How can I find out more?

Please review the SAP webpage for further details (see the section on Appeals).
