  1. Accumulate credits toward the degree greater than or equal to two-thirds the cumulative credits attempted at the institution.
  2. Not have attempted more than 150% of the credits normally required for completion of the degree. 
Students will be measured against the satisfactory academic progress standard at the end of the spring term to determine eligibility for the receipt of the Title IV student financial assistance for the upcoming year. Students who fail to meet the Federal standards will be notified and informed of their right to petition to waive satisfactory academic progress requirements.
