Do Satisfactory Academic Progress rules apply during the Summer?
All credits taken during the Summer Semester will count in Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements and reviews.
Satisfactory Academic Progress from the prior Spring Semester will be completed before any Summer Semester funds will be disbursed.

Satisfactory Academic Progress will be reviewed after the Summer Semester prior to Fall aid being disbursed.
If you do not meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements after the Summer Semester, Fall Semester aid will be cancelled.
