In order to continue receiving financial aid, you must maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP) as described in the Claflin University’s Standards of Academic Progress (SAP). Your academic records will be monitored each semester and reviewed at the end of each academic year. If it is determined that you are not making satisfactory academic progress, you will be notified by the Office for the Vice President of Academic Affairs. If you financial aid is suspended for not meeting satisfactory academic progress, you will have the right to appeal and may do so by writing the Office of Student Financial Aid. The University’s SAP committee will review your appeal. If you are able to prove extenuating circumstances that resulted in your inability to progress, your financial aid eligibility will be reinstated on a probationary status. If you lose your financial aid because you’ve failed to maintain satisfactory progress, you may continue to take courses, but at your own expense.
