Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy
All students attending Arkansas State University-Beebe are required to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards in order to receive federal financial aid. These standards apply to all financial aid applicants whether or not the applicant has previously participated in federal student aid programs.
All hours attempted as a non-degree seeking student or a concurrent student or auditing courses count toward SAP. The exception is concurrent students, right out of high school, will be placed on WARNING status for one semester only and SAP will be evaluated at the end of the semester to determine continued eligibility.
Students flagged as not meeting SAP may contact the Financial Aid Office to verify eligibility as the update is currently a manual process.
Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeals
Students, who do not meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), may appeal financial aid eligibility for reasons including undue hardship, death of a relative, injury or illness, loss of hours due to transfer, change of major, work related or other extenuating circumstances.
