This important notice concerns the new requirements for ALL students to receive—or continue to receive—Federal financial assistance.

Please read this notice even if you do not currently receive financial aid, if in the future you have a need for financial aid, your eligibility will be dependent on the progress that you are currently making toward the completion of your degree as described below in the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy.
