Financial Aid SAP Policy

For students to continue to be eligible to receive financial aid, students must meet SAP standards. Calvary’s SAP policy is the same for Federal Student Aid (FSA) recipients and non-FSA recipients, and it applies to all educational programs and to all students within all categories (e.g., full-time, part time, undergraduate, and graduate students). If a student fails a SAP check, eligibility for financial aid is lost, although an appeal may be made. Calvary conducts an annual review of all students at the end of each academic year, in the spring, to ensure students are making satisfactory academic progress (SAP). To achieve SAP, a student must meet both qualitative and quantitative standards. The qualitative standard requires a student to have a Calvary Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least a 2.0, while the quantitative standard requires a student to have successfully completed at least 67% of the hours attempted.

For more information regarding SAP, including information on filing an appeal, please see the University Catalog, or contact the Financial Aid Office at 816-425-6136. The Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress policy is separate and distinct from the Academic Satisfactory Academic Progress policy found beginning on page 68 of the University Catalog. The Financial Aid policy is written in regards to and refers to a student’s eligibility to receive financial aid, while the Academic policy is written in regards to and refers to a student’s academic standing with the University. Students should read and understand both policies. If you have any questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 816-425-6136
