Fresh Start and Federal Aid Eligibility

Granting of  academic “Fresh Start” by the college does not alter the calculation of the satisfactory academic progress for federal aid.   All attempted credit hours and earned grades need to be taken into consideration for financial aid satisfactory academic progress (SAP).  The Financial Aid Office will recalculate the student’s grade point average based on all GPA hours in the student’s academic history. In these instances, the attempted credit hours, earned credit hours, and GPA used for financial aid SAP calculation will not match what is on the student's transcript.
