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.

2019-20 Appeal Deadlines:

  • Summer 2019 – Monday, June 24, 2019
  • Fall 2019 – Monday, September 9, 2019
  • Spring 2020 – Monday, January 27, 2020
