Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
According to Federal regulations, (34 CFR 668.169(e), 34 CFR 668.32(f), 34 CFR 668.34 and institutional regulations, financial aid recipients must meet all Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards prior to the awarding and/or disbursing of any federal student aid funds. A review of SAP is conducted prior to each disbursement date for all Title IV recipients. The Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy ensures student success and accountability and promotes timely advancement toward objectives at Downey Adult School (DAS). SAP guidelines are based on reasonable expectations of academic progress. Accordingly, these guidelines should not be a hindrance to any student in good academic standing and will be measured using two standards.
1. Qualitative - All students must maintain a minimum of cumulative grade point average (GPA) requirement.
2. Qualitative - Meeting a minimum number of hours per week.
