Federal regulations require that all federal aid recipients make satisfactory progress toward the completion of their academic programs. What this means is that all continuing undergraduate, graduate, and post-baccalaureate students who wish to receive federal grant, loan or employment aid during the 2012/2013 school year must meet the following academic standards during the 2011 Summer Session, 2011 Fall Semester and 2012 Spring Semester (if enrolled at UCM during these terms). Please be advised that this policy does not impact the financial aid eligibility of any student who is entering UCM effective with 2012 Fall (or 2013 Spring) semester.
You must successfully complete at least 2/3 of the total hours you enroll for at UCM during the 2011 Summer Session, 2011 Fall Semester, and 2012 Spring Semesters. Successful completion of credit hours means earning grades of A, B, C, D, or P. Unsuccessful completion of credit hours means earning grades of U, F, W, WF, or NC.
Shortly after completion of the 2012 Spring semester, the UCM Office of Student Financial Services will determine whether or not each 2012/2013 FAFSA applicant has met the above standards. Failure to meet any standard will cause a 'hold' to be placed on an applicants's financial aid eligibility for the 2012/2013 school year (including any assistance that has already been offered). If selected, you’ll be contacted by email and given the opportunity to submit a written appeal to request that your aid eligibility be restored. In your appeal, you'll be asked to explain in detail any personal, family, or economic circumstances you believe impacted your ability to meet the standards. In addition, you'll need to explain what measures you plan to take to ensure that you'll meet the federal Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress during the 2012 Summer Session, 2012 Fall Semester and/or 2013 Spring Semester, if the privilege of again receiving financial assistance is restored to you. The UCM Financial Aid Appeals Committee will review your appeal, post the decision at your MyCentral portal, and contact you by email.
Important: Please be aware that the federal financial aid Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress are separate and distinct from the UCM policies governing academic probation, suspension, and dismissal, as well as any 'satisfactory academic progress' regulations that may be required as a part of receiving state and scholarship assistance.
