What are SAP appeals? How can I appeal for SAP?

Tags SAP appeal

Students are normally notified by campus email when they have failed to meet one or more of the Standards of Academic Progress for Financial Aid. Notification occurs at the end of each semester once grades are posted via your TCC Email. Students have 15 days from the receipt of notification to appeal. Appeal forms and procedures are available in the Financial Aid office and online in your EagleNet account under the Financial Aid Forms section of the Financial Aid tab on the homepage. It is the responsibility of every student to understand the Standards of Academic Progress for Financial Aid and to monitor his or her own standing. Even if no email notification is sent (this may occur in cases where a grade is "incomplete" at the end of the grading process), the standards still apply.

Transfer students must meet the established satisfactory progress requirements; appeals are generally not granted.

Students may appeal their failure to meet the standards of satisfactory progress for financial aid if unusual and mitigating circumstances exist. Unusual and mitigating circumstances include, but are not limited to, a death in the student's immediate family, medical condition, hospitalization, documented emotional distress or other situations beyond the student's control.

All supporting documentation will be fully verified to make sure it is from the party it seems to be. Submitting fraudulent documentation is a crime and students submitting fraudulent documentation will be reported to local law enforcement authorities, to Student Conduct and Community Standards, and to the U.S. Department of Education Office of the Inspector General. This may result in a fine of up to $20,000, a prison sentence, or both.

In addition to academic requirements, students whose appeal is approved must meet with an academic advisor and together complete the Advising for Financial Aid Clearance Form. Students must return the form to the Financial Aid Office before funds will be disbursed.

Students whose appeal is denied may request that the Financial Aid Appeals Committee review their status. If the student has additional supporting documents, the student must provide the documents before the committee meeting. Students do not meet with the committee, and the decision of the committee is final.

Login to your EagleNet account, hover over the Financial Aid tab and select Financial Aid Forms in the drop down menu. Links to all the forms are on the webpage and are finished completely online.
