When reviewing your Financial Aid Award, please remember the following:
Your award is based on full-time enrollment (12 or more) each semester. If you do not enroll full-time, you will lose all institutional gift aid (i.e. merit scholarships), and State and Federal funds will be decreased. You must be enrolled in at least six units each semester to receive federal student loans.
Satisfactory Academic Progress
To receive financial aid, you must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward completing your degree. SAP is defined as maintaining a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher for BFA students and 3.0 or higher for Graduate students, completing at least 67% of all attempted units, and not exceeding 180 attempted units overall. If you fail to maintain SAP, you may be in jeopardy of not receiving financial aid. Click here for more details on SAP.
