Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) is required by Federal Law 668.34 (Federal Register/Vol. 75, No. 209, October 29, 2010) to define and enforce the standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress in measurable standards to determine
a student’s eligibility to receive financial assistance. These standards ensure the proper distribution of financial assistance to eligible students. Students who complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), who are enrolled, and
who are making continuous progress in a program leading to a degree are eligible for Title IV, state, and institutional financial aid.
Title IV Financial Assistance Programs include the following:
Maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress at IUP for Title IV assistance purposes is defined as being in compliance with Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy (SAP). Inability to meet the guidelines of this policy results in a loss of
funding from all Title IV programs. IUP cannot waive the Satisfactory Academic Progress requirement for any student in order to allow them to receive federal financial assistance.
The minimum federal requirements are as follows:
Both part-time and full-time students are treated equally for the purposes of monitoring and enforcing Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
