Letter grades of A through D-, P (passing) and IP grades contribute positively to a student’s completion rate.
Letter grades of F, W, I and IW contribute negatively to a student’s completion rate.
Repeated courses and credits transferred to the university both count towards a student’s completion rate.
The number of credits you attempt in your time as a student is also measured. To be in good standing, you must complete a degree or certificate prior to attempting 150% of the credits needed for the program.
If you are not meeting the minimum GPA and completion rate after the warning term, you will be placed on financial aid suspension. If you exceed the maximum time frame of your program, you will be placed on financial aid suspension and will not have a term of warning.
After you submit your appeal, our office will review the documentation you provide and consider you for financial aid. There are three possible outcomes when you submit the appeal.
CU Anschutz has a maximum appeal limit of 5 appeals during a student’s undergraduate career at the university, and a limit of 3 appeals during a graduate/professional career.
Appeals received 30 days prior to the first day of classes will be reviewed no later than last day to drop with a 100% tuition refund. Please review the Billing Office calendar, as course drop fees may still apply.
Due to processing times, SAP appeals with all supporting documentation must be submitted to the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office at least 14 business days prior to the end of the term. Appeals submitted with less than 14 business days remaining in the term will be considered for the next term of enrollment. No aid will be retroactively awarded.
Please Note: Although your appeal may be approved, you are not guaranteed to receive all aid you may have been eligible for as funding is limited and maybe exhausted.
