Federal regulations require UC Davis Financial Aid and Scholarships to establish Standards for Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
These standards measure qualitative and quantitative requirements and maximum timeframe for a student’s progress toward degree completion. For Undergraduate, Graduate, and Veterinary Medicine students to be eligible for financial aid, students must meet these standards. SAP (GPA, Pace of Progression, and Maximum Timeframe) is evaluated annually in July. Failure to maintain these standards will result in suspension of your financial aid eligibility. However, you have the option to appeal to regain eligibility.
Financial Aid SAP standards are separate and distinct from general academic policies.
For academic policies please refer to the General Catalog or review information on qualitative and quantitative standards outlined under Scholastic Deficiencies. If you need assistance or have questions relating to general academic requirements, please contact an advisor in your program or department.
