Join NASFAA's Tiffany Gibbs and Lissa Powell as we go "back to basics" and beyond with a review of the fundamental concepts of satisfactory academic progress (SAP) such as the requirement that a school's academic standards for Title IV recipients be the same as or stricter than those for non-Title IV recipients, frequency of evaluation, and maximum timeframe. We will also discuss flexibilities provided in the satisfactory academic progress regulations and guidance, as well as some more challenging scenarios, such as grade changes, for which additional clarification has been provided by the U.S. Department of Education (ED).
