To maintain eligibility for federal student assistance, students must maintain progress in their academic programs. Progress has both qualitative and quantitative aspects: that is, the student must be attaining acceptable grades over a limited time period in order to complete his or her academic objective. The school is responsible for establishing the specific requirements for satisfactory academic performance, tracking their students’ progress, and enforcing the consequences of unsatisfactory progress.
