At what point is a student not meeting the maximum timeframe for Satisfactory Academic progress (SAP).

This is the maximum time frame allowed to complete the academic program. A student is eligible to receive financial aid for a maximum number of overall attempted hours.

A student is not meeting SAP at the evaluation point where it is indicated he or she will exceed the maximum timeframe. Not at the point when he or she actually will reach the maximum timeframe.

For Example:
Bachelors

At the end of the semester, the undergraduate student has attempted 160 credit hours out of a possible 180 credit hours allowed under maximum timeframe, but has 30 hours left to earn to complete his/her degree.

The student is not meeting SAP due to exceeding the maximum timeframe because he or she has more hours to earn than what is allowed to graduate with the maximum timeframe.

Associates & Certificates
At the end of the semester, the student has attempted 80 credit hours out of a possible 90 credit hours allowed under maximum timeframe, but has 20 hours left to earn to complete his/her degree.

The student is not meeting SAP due to exceeding the maximum timeframe because he or she has more hours to earn than what is allowed to graduate with the maximum timeframe.
