Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

The Higher Education Act mandates that institutions of higher education monitor the academic progress of students who receive federal financial aid. The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor has established the following minimum standards to be eligible for and continue to receive federal financial aid.


Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) will be reviewed at the end of each payment period (fall, spring, and summer semesters) and will be based on the student achieving both a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 3.0 and earning a minimum of 70% of credit hours attempted.
