Responsible Executive Office: President
Purpose: To outline the steps for an appeal for SAP for loss of financial aid eligibility
If a student has lost financial aid eligibility for failure to meet one or more of the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) minimum requirements, s/he may appeal his/her status by writing an appeal and submitting it to the SAP committee for consideration.
In order to appeal a student must:
Platt College has created a template letter as an example for students to use in creating their responses.
Appeals are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and approval is not guaranteed.
How the Appeals Committee makes a Determination if an Appeal Should be Granted
Students will be notified by the Director of Financial Aid of the outcome of their appeal. Under no circumstances can Probation be assigned to a prior term.
The College may notify students prior to the end of the term or prior to official posting of the financial aid SAP status if the student’s academic progress indicates s/he will be ineligible for aid at the end of the term. This includes students who withdraw from the term or fail to meet the terms of their conditional probation.
Reinstatement of Aid
Students may, or may not, receive all funds awarded prior to the loss of eligibility.
Appeals may be mailed, emailed, or delivered in person to Michael Vigil, Director of Financial Aid at firstname.lastname@example.org at 3100 South Parker Rd. Ste 200, Aurora, CO 80014. The SAP Committee may review a student's appeal and request additional documentation, if necessary.
An appeal is not a guarantee of approval.
