Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

Satisfactory Academic Progress policy

Watch this video about Satisfactory Academic Progress!

To be eligible for financial aid, students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress. Satisfactory Academic Progress will be evaluated each quarter the student is enrolled. For students returning after a break in enrollment, Satisfactory Academic Progress is evaluated for the most recent quarters attended at SCC, SFCC or both. This policy applies to ALL periods of enrollment whether or not the student previously received financial aid. Transfer credits are included.

Credits
To maintain eligibility for financial aid, students must complete the minimum number of credits listed in the Financial Aid Warning column below. 

CENSUS DAY ENROLLMENT FINANCIAL AID WARNING FINANCIAL AID SUSPENSION
 Full time: 12 or more credits  6-11 credits  5 or fewer credits
 3/4 time: 9-11 credits  6-8 credits  5 or fewer credits
 1/2 time: 6-8 credits  N/A  5 or fewer credits
 < 1/2 time: 1-5 credits  N/A  Less than all credits

 

Students must earn a quarterly grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 or better to receive financial aid funding. They must have a minimum 2.00 cumulative college level GPA at the end of their sixth (6th) quarter of attendance. Students who fail to meet this requirement will be placed on Financial Aid Warning or Suspension.

Pace of progression toward maximum time frame
Students must maintain a pace of progression by completing a minimum of  67 percent of all attempted credits to complete a degree within the maximum time frame allowed for receipt of financial aid.

Attempted credits are based on enrollment level on the tenth (10th) day of each quarter. All attempted courses are evaluated to determine completed credits, including those with I, W, Z or 0.0 grades. All transfer credits accepted are counted toward the maximum time frames allowed.

Students who fail to meet these requirements are placed on Financial Aid Warning or Suspension.

A student's pace of progression is determined using the following fomula:
 

Pace of progression = Credits completed
   Credits attempted

Maximum timeframe
Financial aid funding is available for cumulative attempted credits up to 125 percent of the credits required to complete a student's degree or certificate program. Refer to the SCC or SFCC website for specific programs and credit maximums. Remedial credits and courses below the 100 level are excluded from the cumulative credits attempted up to a maximum of 45 remedial credits.

Financial Aid Warning
Students who fail to meet the credit, grade point average or pace of progression Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements will be placed on Financial Aid Warning. Students placed on Financial Aid Warning may receive financial aid for one additional quarter.

Financial Aid Suspension
Students whose aid has been suspended and not eligible for future financial aid. Financial Aid Suspension occurs when:

In the quarter of attendance, a student on Financial Aid Warning or probation, does not complete:

 The credits required for their enrollment level OR

 67 percent of their attempted credits (pace of progression) OR

 Does not earn a quarterly 2.00 GPA.

 A student officially or unofficially withdraws from all classes. Students who withdraw before the publicized last day to withdraw may owe a portioin or all of their financial aid back to the financial aid program.
A student's cumulative college-level GPA is below 2.00 at the end of the sixth (6th) quarter.

Financial aid Satisfactory Academic Progress appeal
Students placed on Financial Aid Suspension may submit an appeal if they failed to make satisfactory academic progress due to extraordinary circumstances. Appeal forms are available online or at one of our Financial Aid Offices. Students are limited to two (2) Satsifactory Academic Progress appeals.

Financial aid probation
If the student's appeal is approved, he/she is placed on Financial Aid Probation. The student's financial aid will be reinstated; however, as part of the approval, some conditions for reinstatement may be imposed. If a student does not meet the conditions of probation and reinstatement, he/she will be suspended and lose eligibility for financial aid.

No longer eligible for financial aid

Students who have completed two CCS degrees and/or certificates or have attempted three programs regardless of completion. If it is mathematically impossible to meet pace of progression requirements, consideration for reinstatement of financial aid will be denied.

Repeat courses
Students who do not pass a course with a GPA of 2.00 or better may receive financial aid once to repeat the course failed. Students who DO successfully pass a course may be paid once to retake it.

Student Privacy

Student privacy

All information shared with a counselor is held in the strictest confidence unless:

1. you contemplate injuring yourself or other people
2. you committed or intend to commit a crime or harmful act
3. you are thought to be involved in child abuse
4. you are thought to be involved in abuse of a dependent adult
5. you find it necessary to file suit against another counselor
6. a court issues a subpoena demanding release of information.

You are assured of receiving competent, professional counseling. If you have a complaint about the quality of counseling you are receiving, please talk to the counselor first. If the two of you cannot resolve your concerns, you should contact your dean of student services.

Please see each counselor individually for his or her personal philosophy statements, or see their statements on their web pages. You should also read the CCS Students Rights and Responsibilities.

You have the right to terminate services with any counselor at any time and seek the services of another counselor.

Pay your tuition and fees

You are responsible for full tuition and fee payments on their payment due dates. There are several ways to pay your tuition: Tuition Installment Payment Plan, credit card or personal checks/money orders.

Although you may have applied for financial aid, it does not constitute payment. If your financial aid has been granted and sent to our Cashiers Office, it automatically will be applied to your class registration two weeks prior to the tuition due date. HOWEVER, it is up to you to check if there is a remaining amount due and pay this balance.

There are a couple of other things to remember as well:

1. Work-study funds cannot be used to pay tuition or fees.

2. Awards from the following fund sources can be used to pay tuition and fees:

Federal Ford Direct Loans
Federal Pell Grant
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
Academic Competitiveness Grant
Tuition Grant
Tuition Waiver
Student Activities Grant

Tuition Installment Payment Plan

Tuition Installment Payment Plan

The Tuition Installment Payment Plan allows students to pay for their college education in three, interest-free installments. The plan covers tuition and class fees for the current quarter. There are several requirements:

1. You must be enrolled in at least 12 credits
2. There is a quarterly $30 nonrefundable enrollment fee. You must re-apply at the Cashiers Office every quarter.
3. The dollar amount listed on the TIPP enrollment form cannot be adjusted for additional tuition and fees if you add classes.

The last day to enroll in the plan each quarter is:  

Fall Sept. 15, 2014
Winter Dec. 4, 2014
Spring March 15, 2015
Summer Coming soon

To enroll:

1. Fill out a TIPP enrollment form, availabe at your college or center Cashiers Office.
2. The first payment and the $30 enrollment fee are paid at the time your register for classes.
3. Payments can be made by check, cash or Visa/Master Card.
4. Payments are due by the first of the month. If a payment isn't received by the first business day of the month, you will be dropped from the TIPP program, ineligible for TIPP in future quarters, and subject to registration policies for students with unpaid balances and disenrolled from classes.
5. Once enrolled in TIPP, you are responsible for all additional tuition and fees if you add classes. If you drop a class, and it generates a refund of tuition and/or fees, it will be applied to your outstanding balance.
