Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal Form Appeal Form [PDF]

Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements
Federal and state financial aid regulations require that all financial aid recipients maintain satisfactory academic progress in their programs of study.  Failure to maintain satisfactory academic progress will result in financial aid warning or suspension.  The first time a student fails to meet the standards for GPA or completion, the student will be placed on warning status and may continue to receive financial aid.  Students on financial aid suspension will not receive financial aid.  Below is a brief outline of the standards to achieve satisfactory progress for financial aid recipients at Great Falls College MSU.  For a complete copy of the policy contact the Financial Aid Office.

Students who have been placed on financial aid suspension because of failure to meet the satisfactory academic progress requirements may appeal in writing to the Financial Aid Office for review of circumstances.  Forms to appeal are available online or in the Financial Aid Office.  Current federal regulations allow only for mitigating circumstances and occurrences beyond the student’s control to constitute an eligible appeal.  All appeals must contain documentation to verify the mitigating circumstances listed in the appeal. An Academic Paln developed with and signed by the student's advisor ust accompany an appeal.
