Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid

There are three components to IRSC’s Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards (SAP) for Financial Aid Recipients:

  1. Financial Aid recipients are expected to maintain a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA for all classes attempted, including transfer credits.
  2. Financial Aid recipients must successfully complete 70% of all credits attempted, including transfer credits.
  3. Financial Aid recipients must complete their degree or certificate within a specified time-frame, based on enrollment status.

In general, students who have attempted more than 150% of their program of study will not be eligible to receive Financial Aid at IRSC, even if some of these credits were attempted at another institution. Some programs have specific higher credit limits. Certain Financial Aid programs may have more restrictive guidelines. More specific SAP guidelines may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office. It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of, and to adhere to, all Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements for Financial Aid recipients.
