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 Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid (SAP). Notification occurs via email at the end of each semester after grades are posted. Students have 15 days from the receipt of notification to appeal. The Financial Aid Satisfactory Progress Appeal form can be found on Workday under the TCC College Forms app . It is the responsibility of every student to understand the Standards of Satisfactory 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 Academic 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. Additional details are provided within the appeal form.

All required supporting documentation will be fully verified to ensure it is genuine. 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 $25,000, 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. The electronic form must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office before funds will be disbursed.

Students whose appeal is denied may request 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 Workday account, select the TCC College Forms app, then select Submit a New Form. The Financial Aid Satisfactory Progress Appeal Form can be found under Financial Aid. The required supporting documentation can be submitted electronically with the appeal form.
