Satisfactory Academic Progress
When your eligibility for financial aid is determined, the award is based on full-time enrollment. Students receiving federal financial aid are required to make Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward the completion of a degree program. Minimum GPA required for Law students is 2.0.
You must complete and earn at least 67 percent of all credit hours attempted each semester and academic year. Attempted credit hours are determined by your enrollment as of the fifteenth calendar day of each semester. Audited classes are not considered attempted hours for financial aid purposes. Earned hours are determined after grades are posted for each semester. Grades of IN, F, W, U, PR, AU or blank are not considered completed class work.
Complete your program within 150 percent of the credit hours required for the program. Maximum hours are determined by the degree requirements as stated by the respective college. If you drop below full-time status after the start of the semester, do not attend all of the classes for which you have registered, or if you will not be attending school due to a SAP termination, it is your responsibility to drop your courses.
You may be required to repay all or a portion of the aid you received. UT may be required to return to the federal government a portion of the funds originally credited to your account. The aid you have earned based on registration, attendance, and length of enrollment, will be calculated. Any unearned amount must be returned to the federal government. Under these circumstances, you may be responsible for charges originally covered by financial aid. Balances owed are subject to the collection process.
