Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress

Financial Aid and Federal Loans Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

Federal regulations (General Provision CRF 668.1) require that Cornell University review the academic progress of students who apply for and/or receive financial assistance. This includes but is not limited to the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan program and all Cornell grants. To be making satisfactory academic progress toward a degree, students must maintain specified grade point averages and proceed through the program at a pace leading to completion within a specified time frame. This regulation applies to each financial aid applicant, whether a previous aid recipient or not. Failure to make satisfactory academic progress may affect your eligibility for financial aid. The specific requirements for undergraduate GPA and credit hours can be found by reviewing the complete policy on the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment website, Graduate and professional degree requirements can be found on their respective college or program websites.
