Federal and state regulations require financial aid recipients to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) towards a recognized degree. SAP applies to all undergraduate students, who receive most types of federal, state, and institutional financial aid administered by the University. At the conclusion of each term or payment period, Allen University reviews all currently enrolled AU students to verify they are meeting the SAP requirements.
Students who have been on suspension cannot merely skip a semester to regain eligibility. No financial aid will be disbursed during subsequent semesters for students on financial aid suspension. In order to regain eligibility for financial aid and enrollment, the student may submit a written appeal in accordance with the appeals process. If the Appeals Committee approves the appeal, the student is then placed on probation with an academic plan and is eligible to receive financial aid.
