Students enrolled in undergraduate degree programs must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale. Students enrolled in graduate degree programs and the Accounting graduate certificate must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
A student must have successfully completed at least 67 percent of all the credits he or she has attempted at Southern New Hampshire University during the entire period of enrollment. Total credits earned divided by total credits attempted equals the percentage.
To ensure pace towards program completion, each program within our university has a defined number of credit hours required for completion. Students must complete their undergraduate program within 150% of the published credits which is defined as the maximum timeframe. All credits attempted will count towards this timeframe.
For example, if the program requirements are 120 credits, then the student must satisfy all requirements of his/her program without having to attempt more than 180 credits.
Credits attempted are those for which the student has enrolled as of the end of the add/drop or standard registration period.
Successful completion is defined as the assignment of a passing grade to the courses attempted and equates to the number of credits earned. Failure, withdrawal, incomplete or other designations to the courses attempted are not considered successful completion.
Transfer credits from other schools:
SAP review will include all terms of the student’s attendance (including summer terms).
Financial Aid Warning: Students enrolled only in the Accounting graduate certificate are placed on financial aid warning for the subsequent term only who fail to make satisfactory academic progress upon review. The student’s eligibility for aid is considered to be reinstated.
Financial Aid Suspension: Failure to meet either the qualitative or quantitative standard will result in the student being placed on financial aid suspension until the next evaluation period. The student will not be allowed to receive financial aid when they have been placed on Financial Aid suspension. Students may also continue to take coursework without the use of financial assistance until eligibility is reinstated by achieving the required SAP standards.
Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal: Students who have been placed on Financial Aid suspension (unsatisfactory status) will be allowed to appeal their suspension. The appeal must include the following to be considered:
Financial Aid Probation: Students who have been initially placed on Financial Aid suspension, who have an approved appeal are placed on SAP probation. Student’s eligibility for Title IV aid would be reinstated.
