2017-2018 Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Notice

At the end of each term, the Office of Student Financial Aid Services (OSFAS) is required to evaluate students who are currently on a Financial Aid Eligibility Plan for compliance with the University SAP policy.  The Financial Aid Eligibility Plan status applies to students whose SAP appeal was approved in 2017.

The fall term review will take place on December 26, 2017.  Students who do not meet the SAP standards will have the option to submit a SAP appeal.  The deadline to appeal is January 9, 2018.  Students should be aware that in order for their appeal to be considered, it must be submitted by the published deadline.  No late appeals will be reviewed.

Also on December 26, 2017, all students’ SAP will be evaluated.  Students who are in jeopardy of not meeting SAP standards will receive a warning letter.  Students needing academic support may seek assistance from the Academic Achievement Center (AAC).  Please visit the AAC website at http://achieve.uconn.edu.

A full description of the SAP policy and requirements of the Financial Aid Eligibility Plan can be found at http://financialaid.uconn.edu/sap.
