It's important to remember that students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid before each year of college to determine financial aid eligibility. In addition, to maintain aid, students have to meet satisfactory academic progress. If a student experiences a special circumstance that prevents them from meeting satisfactory academic progress, there are options. The student can file an SAP appeal to have their case reviewed.
