Satisfactory Academic Progress

Satisfactory Academic Progress

The University of Lincoln is required by USDE Regulations to ensure that all students receiving Federal Aid (subsidized, unsubsidized and PLUS) are making satisfactory academic progress. If you fail to meet SAP you will become ineligible for US Direct Loans.

SAP will be carried out prior to each disbursement.

The guidelines below have been established to encourage students to successfully complete the academic program they attend and continue to receive Financial aid.

A student must:

  • Be making steady progress on all registered modules.
  • Progress must be sufficient that you are expected to pass when you take your exams or submit coursework.

The satisfactory progression to retain Financial Aid is entirely separate from the academic requirements to remain on the course and does not guarantee the outcome of the student’s course. Satisfactory Academic Progress will be checked before any loan funds are released to a student.
