SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC WARNING, TERMINATION AND PROBATION
If a student falls below Satisfactory Academic Progress standards, he or she is given a plan for remediation and placed on Satisfactory Academic Warning by the School Director until the next predetermined evaluation point. If the student continues to fall below SAP at the next pre-determined evaluation point, or fails to maintain the terms of the remediation plan after being given a Satisfactory
Academic Warning he or she will be subject to further administrative action up to and including termination. If the student is terminated from his or her enrollment, the school will immediately notify the student and any appropriate outside agency, such as the Veterans Administration, SEVIS and Bureau of Indian Affairs. For information on appealing terminations, please see “APPEAL PROCESS”.  Students whose appeal has been granted will be placed on Satisfactory Academic Probation and must agree to the probation conditions for continued enrollment.

FINANCIAL AID PROBATION AND REINSTATEMENT
If at the 50 percent evaluation point, a student is not meeting SAP, he or she will lose Title IV financial aid eligibility for the remainder of their enrollment. The student may have his/her financial aid eligibility reinstated by appealing the decision and being placed on Financial Aid Probation. Please see, “APPEAL PROCESS” for more information on this procedure. If probation status is granted, the student is placed on Financial Aid Probation for one payment period and Title IV aid will be reinstated.

APPEAL PROCESS
Students who have received notification that their enrollment and/or Title IV aid has been terminated may appeal the decision by contacting the School Director in writing within three business days of the date of the termination. This written appeal should describe any circumstances that the student feels are worthy of further consideration. These circumstances, may include, but are not limited to:  
illness, injury, financial hardship, or death of a relative. Students must also include what has changed that will allow him or her to meet SAP at the next pre-determined evaluation point and/or better follow school policy. The School Director will make a decision regarding the appeal within three business days of receipt. While the appeal is pending, the student may continue to attend classes at the School Director’s discretion, however, financial aid will remain suspended. All appeal decisions are final.
