Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy Number:
Owner/Implementer: Executive Director of Financial Aid Version: 1.0
Impacted Groups: Undergraduates, Graduates, Professional Students Effective Date: 01/01/14
Effective Period Ending: Spring 2014

 

1. PURPOSE OF THE POLICY 

Satisfactory Academic Progress ("SAP") ensures students are able to complete their academic program in a timely manner while achieving and maintaining compliance with minimum academic standards. Federal regulations mandate that all students are required to conform to SAP standards as they work towards a degree in order for them to qualify to receive financial assistance through all Touro College and University System ("Touro") eligible Title IV federal financial aid programs. Conformance to Touro’s SAP policy ensures students complete their academic program in a timely manner while achieving and maintaining compliance with minimum academic standards. 

2. SCOPE 

This SAP policy applies to all Touro Students including Undergraduates, Graduates and Professional students as described below. These standards are for Title IV Federal Financial Aid purposes only and neither replace nor override academic policies outlined by Touro, other state or Federal benefit programs (i.e. NYS Tuition Assistance Program) or individual program requirements. However, these standards are intended to be at least as rigorous as Touro College academic policies. 

3. THE POLICY 

3.1 STANDARDS OF SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS 

SAP standards (CGPA, Pace, and Maximum Time Frame, hereinafter collectively referred to as "Standards") consist of quantitative and qualitative measurements that are determinants of SAP. The qualitative measurement evaluates the quality (i.e. GPA and Academic Standing) of the students’ academic work. The quantitative measurement evaluates the Pace by which students are working toward the completion of their program and the Maximum Time Frame required to complete their program. 

3.1.1 GPA and Academic Standing (Qualitative): All students must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average ("CGPA") as specified in Appendix A found at the 

end of this policy and be neither dismissed nor suspended from their academic program, as determined by their program’s specific academic standards policy. All students are also required to achieve a CGPA that is consistent with their program requirement for graduation. 

3.1.2 Pace (Quantitative): Students must be on target to complete their academic program within the set time frame, which is measured by the Pace at which they complete their required coursework. All students must maintain a minimum Pace as specified in Appendix A found at the end of this policy. To determine if a student is meeting this standard, total cumulative earned credit hours at Touro plus accepted transfer credit hours are divided by the total cumulative attempted credit hours, including accepted transfer credits. A student must successfully complete the designated cumulative minimum percentage of all attempted credit hours at the point of SAP evaluation as determined by the calculation above and illustrated in the table below.

3.1.3 Maximum Time Frame (Quantitative): All students are expected to finish their degree or certificate program within a maximum time frame, no longer than 150% of the published length of their program. For undergraduate students, the maximum Time Frame is measured in credit hours; for graduate and professional students the maximum Time Frame is measured by the actual length of the program as provided in the Appendices. 

3.2 ADDITIONAL CONSTRAINT ON FINANCIAL AID ELIGIBILITY 

Students who have completed the academic requirements for a program but do not yet have the certificate or degree are not eligible for federal financial aid funds for that program of study. 

3.3. SAP EVALUATION 

3.3.1 Frequency and Timing: Touro evaluates all students’ academic progress annually. Within three ("3") weeks after the end of the spring semester/term, the Office of Financial Aid will review the academic records of all students who are receiving federal financial aid funds to determine if they are meeting the Standards. This review will be performed for all students who were enrolled at Touro for the previous academic year (i.e. Summer, Fall and Spring). Students who enter in the spring semester/term will be evaluated after the spring semester/term using the Standards for the semester/term that the student is enrolled at Touro plus any accepted transfer credits. 

3.3.2 Evaluation: The Office of Financial Aid will perform an annual review of each student’s progress to ensure that students are meeting each of the Standards. If it is determined that the student is not compliant with any of the Standards, the student becomes ineligible to receive federal financial aid and Financial Aid eligibility will be suspended. 

3.4. SAP NOTIFICATION 

A student not meeting the Standards will be notified in writing of their Financial Aid Suspension within three weeks after all grades have been posted for their program of study. The notification will include an explanation of the Standards evaluated and instructions on how to proceed. Written notification will be sent electronically via their Touro email account and/or mail via the last known mailing address according to the Registrar’s records. 

3.4.1 Financial Aid Suspension: Students who do not meet the Standards (as indicated in the Appendices) at the time of the annual evaluation, will be ineligible to receive federal financial aid funds for the subsequent semester (unless they submit an appeal and are placed on financial aid probation). 

Financial Aid is suspended for a student who fails to meet the standards of SAP and: 

• has not submitted an appeal of their status or has had their appeal rejected by the appropriate review committee; 

• fails to regain eligibility by meeting the minimum Standards after a successful appeal and completion of the probationary period; or 

• has not fulfilled the requirements set forth in their Academic Plan. 

Students with Financial Aid eligibility suspended may either: 

remediate any of the Standards that are non-compliant while not receiving federal or state need-based financial aid, or 

submit an SAP appeal. 

If at any time during a non-review period, a student who has been suspended from Financial Aid eligibility has remediated any of the Standards that are non-compliant (e.g., due to a late grade change or completing an incomplete course), that student must contact the Office of Financial Aid to request a review of their academic record and reinstatement of their financial aid eligibility. Do NOT assume that reinstatement is automatic. 

Unless academically dismissed, students may be permitted to enroll at Touro while financial aid is suspended. Students denied federal financial aid may continue attending Touro by funding their education themselves. It is the student’s responsibility to monitor his or her academic progress and to be aware of their program requirements and SAP standards. 

3.4.2 Financial Aid Probation: Financial Aid Probation is a status assigned to any student who fails to meet the Standards and has successfully appealed their Financial Aid Suspension. If placed on Financial Aid Probation, students will be required to follow an approved Academic Plan in order to receive federal financial aid for one semester/term and have their progress be evaluated at the end of the semester/term. Students who meet all Standards or the requirements outlined in their Academic Plan will remain eligible for federal financial aid. Students who fail to meet the Standards or the requirements outlined in their Academic Plan will again be suspended from financial aid eligibility and will be ineligible for federal financial aid going forward. 

Only Financial Aid eligible applicants and/recipients will be placed on Financial Aid Probation. Students who have filed an appeal and are approved will be placed on Financial Aid Probation in the next semester which they have applied for federal financial aid, which could include the semester in/for which the appeal is granted. 

3.4.3 Discretionary Review of SAP in Non-Annual Review Periods: The Office of Financial Aid or the Registrar may, at its discretion, conduct SAP assessments at any time throughout the academic year. If upon performing the analysis the financial aid or registrar staff identifies that a student may be at risk of failing to meet all Standards, the identified student(s) may be sent a courtesy notification via their Touro email address. 

Any student for whom a discretionary SAP assessment is performed and risk is identified, a flag (not to be confused with Financial Aid suspension or probation) will be placed on the student’s account to notify the Financial Aid department, the Registrar, and the student’s academic advisor that the student is at risk of losing federal financial aid eligibility. Students who receive a courtesy notification letter will continue to have their federal financial aid processed as normal by the Office of Financial Aid for the term during which the discretionary review was completed and until they fail to meet the standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress as determined by the annual review period as described above. 

3.5. APPEAL PROCESS 

Students who become ineligible to receive federal financial aid for failure to meet the Standards and have been notified of the Financial Aid Suspension have the right to make a written appeal to the appropriate Committee on Academic Standing ("CAS"). Students who appeal must demonstrate all of the following: 

that failure to meet the minimum standard was caused by extreme or unusual circumstances beyond his or her control (corroborating documentation must be supplied); 

that they have resolved the issue(s) that caused the deficit, and; 

that the issue(s) will not affect their performance in the future. 

 

3.5.1 Monitoring the Status of An Appeal: Once an appeal is submitted to the appropriate committee for a decision, that appeal will be heard at that committee’s next meeting. All decisions are final. If a decision has not been made by the time tuition is due, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the Office of Financial Aid to discuss the options on how to proceed. 

Below is a listing of the potential appeal statuses that could be determined by the CAS: 

In-Progress: Appeal has been received, but not reviewed.

• Tabled: Appeal has been reviewed, but the committee has deferred the appeal until it receive(s) additional information. 

Approved: Appeal has been approved and the student has been placed on Financial Aid Probation. 

Denied: Appeal was not approved based on the information that was provided. The student is no longer eligible to receive federal financial aid. 

3.5.2 Limit of appeals: Students may not initiate an appeal using the same extraordinary and extenuating circumstance twice 

3.5.3 Regaining Eligibility for Financial Aid through Self-Correction: Students who are denied federal financial aid on the basis of not meeting the Standards, may regain federal financial aid eligibility by becoming compliant with all of the Standards while on Financial Aid Probation or while studying at their own expense. This is known as self-correction. 

It is the student's responsibility to notify the Office of Financial Aid when they have self-corrected their SAP-related issue(s). The Office of Financial Aid will then conduct a review to confirm that the student is meeting all Standards at that point in time. 

3.5.4 Late Grade Posted or Grade Change: Students whose Financial Aid eligibility has been or those on Financial Aid Probation who have a grade posted late or changed must notify the Office of Financial Aid to have their SAP re-evaluated. It is the responsibility of the student to notify the Office of Financial Aid of these circumstances. There is no automatic process to clear Financial Aid Suspension or Probation. If no notice is provided, the student’s SAP status will remain unchanged and will be re-evaluated during the next annual review. 

3.5.5 Program Changes: Students who switch programs while at Touro will be evaluated based only on the Standards for the program for which they are currently active. Students who are not compliant with any Standards prior to switching programs or based on their new program may be required to submit an SAP appeal form before they are eligible to receive any federal financial aid. Failure to submit an appeal may result in the student not being eligible for federal financial aid. It is the student’s responsibility to appreciate that a program change may result in a Financial Aid Suspension. 

3.5.6 Academic Plan: If an appeal is approved, the student will be placed on Financial Aid Probation and given an Academic Plan. 

An Academic Plan is a written agreement between the student and the institution that may extend the student's eligibility for federal financial aid for one semester/term during a designated probationary period. The Academic Plan specifies requirements (i.e., minimum course completion ratio, CGPA, reduced course load or enrolling in specific courses) that the student must meet and exceed each semester/term to maintain or regain federal financial aid eligibility. A student that does not meet these Standards will again be suspended from Financial Aid eligibility and will be ineligible for federal aid in future semesters/terms until the student can meet the standards. 

3.6. EFFECT OF WITHDRAWALS, TENTATIVE GRADES, REPETITION, AND TRANSFER CREDITS 

3.6.1 Withdrawal (W), Unauthorized Withdrawal (WU), Withdrawal Pass (WP) and Withdrawal Never Attended (WNA): Students are given a "W" (Withdrawal) when they officially withdraw from a course. The course will only appear on the transcript if students withdraw after the end of the second week of classes. A "W" grade is not calculated into the GPA, attempted credits or earned credits, when dropped on or before the second week of classes. After the second week of classes, a "W" grade is calculated into the attempted credits, but not calculated into GPA or earned credits. 

A grade of "WU" (Unauthorized Withdrawal) is assigned to students that stop attending before the end of the eighth week of classes during the fall or spring semester/term, or the second week during the summer sessions. The "WU" grade is calculated in the GPA as a failing grade, and is included in the attempted credits and earned credits. 

The grade of "WNA" (Withdrew Never Attended) is assigned if students have never attended class. This grade is not calculated into the GPA, attempted credits or earned credits. 

Withdrawn courses recorded on the student’s permanent academic transcript are included in the Pace and maximum Time Frame calculations as attempted but not satisfactorily completed credits. Please see each school’s Bulletin or Student Handbook for detailed information as it pertains to each type of withdrawal (i.e., W, WU and WNA) 

3.6.2 Incompletes (INC): Courses that are assigned an "incomplete" grade are included in the attempted credits but not earned credit hours for Pace and maximum Time Frame measures. They are entered as attempted but not satisfactorily completed credits and are not included in the CGPA. Students’ status may change once a final grade is recorded. It is the responsibility of the student to notify the Financial Aid office when a grade has been entered as final. 

3.6.3 Tentative (Incompletes) (T): Courses that are assigned a "tentative" grade are included in the attempted and earned credit hours for Pace and maximum Time Frame and are included in the CGPA. Only tentative grades of "TC-" to "TF" are assigned. Students’ SAP status may change once a final grade is recorded. It is the responsibility of students to notify the Financial Aid office when a grade has been entered as final. If a "TC-" or "TF" grade is not resolved six ("6") weeks from the date that the grade is submitted by the professor the "T" will drop and the grade will be final. This may result in Financial Aid suspension and they will have to submit an appeal to regain financial aid eligibility. 

3.6.4 Pass/Fail (Pass/No Credit at the Law Center): All credits for Pass /Fail/ Pass-No Credit course attempts will be counted as attempted credits. Only P grades will count as satisfactorily completed credit hours in the quantitative measures. However, under no circumstances can students' full time course load in a given semester/term consist only of P/F courses. Passing grades include "P" (Pass), "H" (Pass with Honors) or "P"/"NC" (Pass/No Credit). 

3.6.5 Repetitions: For purposes of financial aid, students may be permitted to retake courses in which the student received a failing grade or its equivalent (i.e. where a grade of B- or below is considered non-passing), which is dependent on the academic requirements of the program in which the student is enrolled. Each time a course is attempted, it is considered an attempt when calculating the Pace of completion and maximum Time Frame measures, regardless of whether the course is subsequently repeated for a better grade. 

Students are only allowed to receive federal financial aid for one repeat of a course in which a passing grade is earned but a higher grade is required to meet program requirements. If after that one allowable repeat, a satisfactory grade is not achieved, the student may not be eligible to receive federal financial aid for additional repeats of the same course. 

3.6.6 Transfer Credits: For purposes of financial aid, only transfer credit hours officially accepted for the student’s program of study will be automatically counted in the attempted and successfully completed credit hours toward the quantitative (Pace of completion) and maximum Time Frame. Various programs of Touro may have different standards and requirements regarding acceptability of transfer credits and calculations will be based on the program in which the student is enrolled. 

3.6.7 Remedial Courses: Remedial courses do not count toward a student’s degree requirements; however, they are counted toward establishing full time status at Touro. Remedial courses are not calculated in the quantitative measure to determine pace of completion and not calculated in the maximum Time Frame and CGPA evaluations. Touro calculates a separate standard of good academic standing for students taking remedial courses; please refer to the Remedial Students Academic Standing Chart in Appendix A. 

In addition students are allowed to repeat and obtain financial aid for each remedial course only once. Students who fail the same course or level twice are not making SAP and may be placed on financial aid suspension. A student who withdraws after five weeks of the semester/term will be considered to be repeating the course upon his/her next attempt of the course. Students who withdraw twice from any such course are not considered to be making satisfactory progress and may be dismissed from Touro. The CAS may grant a waiver to allow a student to repeat a remedial course for one additional semester/term depending upon the circumstances. 

3.7. SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS DEFINITIONS 

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP): Federal requirement that mandates that institutions monitor a student’s academic progress for the purpose of determining financial aid eligibility. To be in good SAP standing, the student must meet all SAP Standards. 

SAP Standards: Refers to the standards that students must meet in order to maintain their financial aid eligibility. This includes maintaining compliance with cumulative GPA, Pace, and maximum time frame requirements. 

Cumulative GPA Requirement: The Cumulative GPA requirement ("CGPA") is the cumulative grade point average that a student must achieve at each SAP evaluation. If a student is enrolled in a program that is more than two academic years, the student must have a CGPA of at least a "C" or its equivalent, or have academic standing consistent with the institution’s requirement for graduation. Please refer to Appendix A for requirements by program. 

Pace Requirement: The Pace requirement is the Pace at which a student must progress through their program calculated by dividing the cumulative number of credit hours the student has successfully completed by the cumulative number of credit hours the student has attempted. Please refer to Appendix A for requirements by program. 

Maximum Time Frame Requirement: For an undergraduate program measured in credit hours, a period no longer than 150% of the published total credit hours required to graduate. For a graduate program, no more than 150% of the published length of the program. Please refer to Appendix A for requirements by program. 

Financial Aid Suspension: Financial Aid Suspension refers to a student who fails to meet the SAP standards. These students are ineligible for federal financial aid. 

Financial Aid Probation: Financial Aid Probation is a status assigned to any student who fails to meet the Standards and has successfully appealed their Financial Aid Suspension. If placed on Financial Aid Probation, students will be required to follow an approved Academic Plan in order to receive federal financial aid for one semester/term. 

Financial Aid Courtesy Notification: After a discretionary review in a non-review period, a Financial Aid Courtesy Notification may be sent to students if it has been determined that they are at risk of not making SAP at the SAP evaluation. The student’s federal financial aid will not be affected at this point. 

Appeal: A student submits an appeal after notification of Financial Aid Suspension to petition the institution (through the appropriate Committee on Academic Standing) for reconsideration for reconsideration of their eligibility for federal financial aid when they are not meeting SAP standards. An appeal must explain why the student failed to make SAP and what has changed in the student’s situation that will allow the student to make SAP in the future. 

Academic Plan: An Academic Plan is a written agreement between the student and the institution that may extend the student's eligibility for federal financial aid for one semester/term during a designated probationary period. 

This Policy will be reviewed periodically and will be updated, as necessary. All changes to this policy will be updated on the Touro Website where the policy can normally be found. No notice is necessary when making changes to this policy and you are responsible for keeping current on any changes to this or any other Touro policy and acting accordingly.
