School A has a student who withdrew and enrolled at another school for a year. The student then returns to School A. Does the student return under the same satisfactory academic progress, status or can the school start fresh?
No. The student's SAP status is not reset. Academic amnesty is not allowed for SAP purposes, nor is sitting out a term or paying for one's own classes sufficient to establish eligibility for aid. See pages 1-16 and 1-17 of the 2018-19 FSA Handbook.
