Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy and Procedures
To be eligible to receive Student Financial Aid funds, which includes financial aid from federal, state and institutional programs, students must maintain satisfactory academic progress. Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) is required by the U.S. Department of Education to establish minimum standards of satisfactory academic progress. Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) means the student is proceeding in a positive manner toward fulfilling educational requirements. SAP is calculated each semester. SAP includes all periods of the student's enrollment, including periods in which the student does not receive financial aid funds.
Students attending ECSU must be in good academic standing and making satisfactory progress with a minimum GPA and completion rate in accordance with the maximum time frame, as stated below.
