Satisfactory Academic Progress

To be eligible to receive financial aid, which includes funds from federal, state and institutional programs, students must maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP). Savannah State University is required by the U.S. Department of Education to establish minimum standards of SAP to ensure the student is proceeding in a positive manner toward graduation. SAP is calculated each semester and includes all periods of the student's enrollment, including periods in which the student does not receive financial aid funds.

For student that may not be making SAP and need to complete an appeal, log into the student form portal prior to the first day of the semester and complete that semester's appeal to be eligible for review.
