Federal Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Standard

Undergraduate students must make satisfactory academic progress toward completing their degree to remain eligible for Federal financial aid at City Tech.

There are 3 parts to the college's federal satisfactory academic progress (SAP) standard:

  1. Minimum GPA — You must have the GPA needed to meet the college's minimum retention standard (that is, you cannot be on academic probation or academic dismissal).
  2. Maximum Time-frame — You may not attempt more than 150% of the credits typically required to earn your degree (that is, you cannot attempt more than 90 credits to earn 60).
  3. Pace of Progression — You must successfully complete a certain percentage of the total number of credits that you attempt according to the following table:
  4. Associate Degrees (Two-Year Programs)

    Attempted Credits 6 12 18 24 30 36 42 48 54 60 66 72 78 84 90
    Earned Credits 0 0 2 4 6 13 19 23 27 33 39 44 49 55 61

    Baccalaureate Degrees (Four-Year Programs)

    Attempted Credits 15 30 45 60 75 90 105 120 135 150 165 180
    Earned Credits 0 5 16 27 42 50 63 72 84 95 110 120

Annual SAP Review

Each student's academic record will be measured against the three progress components at the end of every spring term to determine Federal and State aid eligibility. All courses that appear on the permanent academic record and all courses accepted for transfer will be part of the review.

Financial Aid Suspension

Failure to satisfy any or all of the SAP criteria will result in the suspension of federal student aid eligibility, i.e., loss of eligibility to receive any federal student aid. Federal financial aid includes Federal Pell Grant, SEOG, Work-Study, and Direct Loan assistance. Student aid eligibility will remain suspended until actions are taken to regain eligibility with the appropriate SAP standard.

Right to Appeal

Students placed on financial aid suspension have the right to appeal to have their aid reinstated. Students must submit their appeal using the following link: https://cuny-nyt.verifymyfafsa.com/. Before accessing the portal, first-time users of CUNY Financial Aid Student Forms will be required to complete the registration process and confirm personal identifying information reported on your FAFSA. For more information about Student Forms, please visit the CUNY website.

The appeal must provide:

A detailed explanation describing the mitigating circumstances resulting from events such as personal illness or injury, illness or death of a family member, loss of employment, or changes in your academic program that interfered with manifesting academic sufficiency. Please mention in the letter any other pending college appeals, i.e., academic probation appeals. Supporting documentation, such as medical, death certificates, court or legal records, etc., must also be submitted. Discuss changes in circumstances or any personal adjustments made that will assist in achieving and maintaining SAP standards in the future.

Note: To submit a SAP Appeal you must be enrolled for the current semester.

Individualized Academic Plans

Students unable to regain eligibility within one semester will be placed on financial aid probation and must submit an academic plan. The SAP committee will notify students via student forms comments if the individual academic plan (IAP) requirement is needed once the SAP appeal has been submitted and reviewed. Students must login to their Student Forms portal account to see comments from the SAP committee. Students required to submit the IAP must contact the Counseling Center for assistance.

If an appeal is granted, the student is placed on financial aid probation, and federal student aid eligibility is reinstated for one semester. At the end of the probationary semester, the student's record will be reviewed to ensure compliance with the prescribed academic plan. If you fail to meet the conditions of the academic plan in any probationary semester, your eligibility for federal financial aid will be once again suspended.

Re-establishing Eligibility

Other than having eligibility restored through filing a successful appeal, students may have their financial aid suspension removed by taking actions that bring them into compliance with all the SAP standards. The mere passage of time, by itself, is insufficient to restore student aid eligibility. One such action would be to continue attendance without using federal financial aid funds.

Re-establishing Financial Aid Eligibility

A request for SAP review may be requested after any term for which financial aid was suspended. If the standard is met, you will regain eligibility for federal assistance in the subsequent terms of the academic year.
