Graduate Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
The Financial Aid Office will measure, after each term of attendance, whether or not you are meeting SAP (see Elements of SAP for helpful terms and general information). The standards measured are as follows:
- Cumulative GPA: Students must achieve and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 after attempting 20 graduate credits at UW-Green Bay.
- Cumulative Completion Rate: Students must pass 67% of the overall credits attempted (see Elements of SAP). Attempts are counted regardless of whether or not aid was received for that term and will include all credits, including test, transfer, etc.
- UW-Green Bay Completion Rate: In addition to the cumulative completion rate (above), students must pass 50% of their UW-Green Bay credits attempted (see Elements of SAP). Attempts are counted regardless of whether or not aid was received for that term.
- Cumulative Attempted Credit Maximum: Students must graduate with attempted credits (see Elements of SAP) within 150% of a published program’s length. The Financial Aid Office will begin to alert students when they have reached 30 graduate credits attempted. At 45 credits, graduate students will need to appeal to have aid reinstated and consideration of program requirements will be made at that time. If any UW- Green Bay Graduate program has a published length that allows the student to exceed 45 credits, the maximum timeframe calculated will be based on that.
