Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) must be maintained while receiving federal, state and institutional aid at Great Lakes Boat Building School.  There are three measurements for Satisfactory Academic Progress:

  • GLBBS cumulative grade point average (GPA)
  • Percentage of attempted credits or clock hours completed, and
  • Maximum credits or clock hours needed in which to complete the program

Students must meet all three measurements.  Students are reviewed at the end of EACH payment period (also called a semester).  Students who fail to meet satisfactory academic standards after one period will receive one subsequent payment period of aid while on Financial Aid WARNING status.  Students who are on a financial aid warning semester can receive federal, state and institutional aid as long as they meet all eligibility requirements. At the end of the warning period, a student who still has not met the standards will lose their eligibility for all aid, including federal, state and institutional aid.  This is referred to as Financial Aid SUSPENSION status.)

The Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy is available here.
