(SAP) policies that meet the requirements detailed in the regulations.
Institutions must establish standards for SAP that measure a student’s
progress toward degree/certificate completion using both qualitative

So what can I do to ensure that I stay in SAP Good Standing?
We recommend that you follow these guidelines, which will al-
low you to complete your degree/certificate within a reasonable
amount of time.
  • Drop courses during the first week to help eliminate unwanted
    “W”s (attempted credits).
  • Take a reasonable credit load to ensure you successfully
    complete as many credits as you attempt.
  • Don’t withdraw from courses.
  • Earn good grades (don’t fail courses).
  • Take courses that are required or count toward your declared
    major so that you can complete your program in the timeframe
    allowed.
