Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid Recipients

Section 484 of the Higher Education Act, as amended, requires that students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress standards to maintain eligibility for financial aid. Qualitative (grade) and quantitative (amount of courses completed) progress for purposes of the receipt of student financial assistance (grants, loans and work study) is evaluated every semester.


Satisfactory academic progress for financial aid is defined as:

  • Successful completion of at least 67 percent of all credit courses attempted while enrolled at Moraine Park.
  • Cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0.
  • Maximum time frame students may receive federal and state financial aid cannot exceed 150 percent of the number of credits required to earn a degree.
