How do withdrawals and grades affect your future aid?

Withdrawing from courses or not obtaining a passing grade can impact your financial aid eligibility. If you want to remain eligible for federal and state financial aid programs, including work-study, you must make satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward your degree. For a complete explanation of SAP, view the policy online.
