Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Federal guidelines require that you make progress toward your degree to continue to receive financial aid. This requirement is called Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). 

The SAP policy addresses your academic progress during all terms of enrollment at DePaul, including summer, whether or not you receive financial aid during the terms.

At DePaul, this policy applies to federal, state, need-based institutional aid, and most forms of institutional merit-based or talent-based aid. Institutional aid programs may have specific eligibility or renewal requirements in addition to the minimum requirements of the SAP policy.
