 Satisfactory Academic Progress

A student is required to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward the completion of a degree, certificate, or credential program while attending The Chicago School. SAP is measured to ensure that a student is making satisfactory academic progress toward degree completion. A studen​t who meets SAP is considered to be in Academic and Financial Aid Good Standing.

A student enrolled in a Dual Degree program will be subject to the Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements in all terms/semesters where they are registered and attending The Chicago School.

This SAP policy meets federal and accrediting agency regulations governing student eligibility for financial aid. This requirement applies to all students regardless of method of payment or enrollment status. Failure to meet these standards may result in the loss of financial aid eligibility.

SAP is measured qualitatively (grade-based) and quantitatively (time-based). The qualitative measure is cumulative grade point average (CGPA).  The quantitative measure is the percentage of attempted credit hours that are successfully completed which is rate of progress (ROP).  A student must complete the required credit hours for the program of study within the maximum allowable credit hours attempted (150% of the required credit hours), referred to as the maximum time frame (MTF).​

For more information on the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy, please contact your Student Support Counselor or visit the Student Handbook.
