What is the university appeals committee process, in general?
A student who does not meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for the first time is placed on financial aid warning for the following semester. If a student continues to fail to meet the minimum SAP standards, they are placed on financial aid suspension. The student must then appeal with the financial aid office to regain their financial aid eligibility. A student who makes all F’s in a semester is automatically placed on financial aid suspension with no warning. Satisfactory Academic Progress is reviewed at the end of each term. To appeal, the student must submit the following documentation to our office for review by the University Financial Aid Appeals Committee: The appropriate appeal form/educational plan, completed by the student’s academic advisor, and supporting documentation. Once a decision has been made, the student’s account is updated and the student is notified by university email of the changes made to their account. For further details and instructions, review the Appeals Process section of the A&M-Commerce website.
