Financial Aid

Satisfactory Academic Progress - Maintaining your eligibility

The Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) which includes ten colleges and two skill centers, has a Satisfactory Academic Progress policy. This policy affects any student that has or will apply for financial aid.
Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for Financial Aid Eligibility

Federal regulations (CFR 668.32(f) and 668.34) require a student to move toward the completion of a degree or certificate within an eligible program when receiving financial aid. Specific requirements for academic progress for financial aid recipients are applied differently than Scholastic Standards. Federal regulations state that Academic Progress Standards must include a review of all periods of enrollment, regardless of whether or not aid was received. The student must meet the following minimum standards in order to receive financial aid.
