Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) to continue receiving federal financial aid.

Financial assistance is disbursed to students who meet the following requirements:

  • Maintain a CGPA of 2.0 or above during enrollment.
    • Students on grade warning status may continue to receive federal and institutional aid. However, students whose status is probation or suspension are not eligible for aid.
  • Complete all graduation requirements within 150% of the minimum hours required to complete your degree.
    • Most BYU–Hawaii students require 120 credit hours for a B.A. or B.S. degree. The maximum attempted credit hour limit for these students is 180 hours (which is 50% more than the 120 hours required).
    • Your maximum hour limit includes all “attempted” credit hours (credit hours for classes you repeated, and those for which you received a failing grade, a withdrawal, or incomplete).
    • Undergraduates who accumulate 60 hours of non-progress grades automatically lose eligibility for federal and institutional aid.
    • Transfer students should speak with a financial aid counselor to review their transfer work and to determine their maximum attempted credit hour limit.
  • Successfully complete at least 67 percent of all attempted credits in which they are enrolled.
    • Successful completion includes all classes for which the student receives a grade of A+ through D-.
    • Non-progress grades are those which indicate: failing, withdrawal, incomplete, or that a course was repeated.
