All undergraduate and graduate students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements to receive financial aid at James Madison University. Federal regulations require each institution to have a SAP policy, which establishes the minimum standards for financial aid eligibility. The university measures your academic performance based on three standards: grade point average (GPA), pace and maximum time.

If you are a continuing education student in the teacher licensure program and do not meet SAP requirements, follow the appeals process described for undergraduate students to request reconsideration.

2016-17 Appeal Deadlines:

  • Summer 2016 - Monday, June 27, 2016
  • Fall 2016 - Monday, September 12, 2016
  • Spring 2017 - Monday, January 23, 2017
