Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Warning - Failure to complete the required course work with satisfactory grades in any one academic semester will result in a financial aid warning during the next semester in which the student is enrolled. If, during the warning semester, the student completes the term with satisfactory grades, he/she will return to good standing. The following term, the student can receive financial assistance if they are enrolled in enough credit hours to be otherwise eligible for state or federal assistance.

Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Probation - If the student appeals his/her cancellation status and the Financial Aid and Compliance Officer has determined the student should be able to make satisfactory academic progress during the subsequent payment period, then he/she is considered to be on Financial Aid Probation.

The student must meet with his or her advisor to produce an academic plan that will ensure the student is able to meet St. John’s College satisfactory academic progress standards by a specific point in time. The student and advisor must sign the academic plan. A copy of the academic plan must be submitted to the Financial Aid and Compliance Officer prior to the next semester’s disbursement.

Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Cancellation - If the student fails to complete the required course work, or receives an unsatisfactory grade during the warning semester, he/she will be sent a written denial of financial assistance for the next semester. A student, who has been terminated from assistance for not making satisfactory progress, may regain his/ her eligibility by completing all previously required course work, in addition to the course work for the current semester, with satisfactory grades. However, the student will not receive federal assistance during this term. Should a student on financial assistance be reinstated and subsequently terminated a second time, he/she will not be eligible for any further assistance.

Notification of Financial Aid Cancellation - The Office of Student Financial Assistance will notify, in writing, students currently receiving financial assistance through in-house mail or direct mail (when classes are not in session) or via e-mail of their suspension from receiving aid.

Financial Aid Appeal Process
Students on Financial Aid Academic Suspension may appeal in writing to the Financial Aid and Compliance Officer, St. John’s College. The appeal letter should address specific reasons for requesting the appeal. Describe in detail:
  • The reason for past performance difficulties (including supporting documentation).
  • How the situation has changed. If it has not changed, describe how it is now being handled and supply a solution for improvement.
  • The written appeal must be submitted within 30 calendar days of notification from the Office of Financial Assistance or after receipt of semester grades, whichever is first. Appeals are processed on a case-by-case basis. The student’s circumstances, academic advisement and current federal regulations are taken into consideration. Appeal decision will be mailed within 30 calendar days using the same mailing process as the notification of warning/cancellation.
Types of Financial Aid
Financial aid programs covered by the standards are:
  - Federal Direct Loan Programs
