SAP Academic Plan: Financial Aid Probation

Students must complete the Satisfactory Academic Progress Academic Plan if they have not successfully met the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards for the previous enrolled semester, resulting in Financial Aid Probation. The SAP Academic Plan is a plan of action that the student and Dean of Academic Engagement will create in order to ensure the student's academic success. Both the SAP Academic Plan and the SAP Appeal Form must be completed in order to appeal for financial aid. The WWC Financial Aid Office will review the completed forms to determine if a student will be reconsidered for financial aid. 

The requirements for an “academic plan” will include the following. 

  • You must pass a minimum of 12 credits or meet the SAP requirement of 67% of attempted versus earned, both semester and cumulatively. If you pass a minimum of 12 credits, this will help in reestablishing your PACE toward graduation. If you only meet the SAP requirement of 67%, this may mean you need to catch up on your cumulative hours attempted vs. earned.
  • Your cumulative GPA must show improvement by the end of the currently enrolled semester, showing that you are moving toward the goal of the second semester OR you must fully meet the requirements of the SAP policy.
  • You must be off academic probation (if this pertains to you) by the end of the semester

This form must be completed and signed by the student and the Dean of Student Success in the Academic Support Office. Students may contact the Dean of Student Success by email at lohare@warrenwilson.edu or by phone at 828.771.3012.

Failure to meet the plan combined with a failure to make Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) by the end of the next semester will result in a loss of aid with no further options for appeal. The process of completing the SAP Appeal Form and signing this contract for an “academic plan” does not guarantee approval. The appeal and academic plan will be reviewed at the same time. Academic transcripts and any pending class schedule will also be reviewed. BOTH the SAP Appeal Form and an Academic Plan must be completed to appeal. Both forms must be signed.

The above named student and the Dean of Academic Engagement have reviewed requirements for meeting "Satisfactory Academic Progress" as presented in the Warren Wilson College Catalog, section 1.04.7. Given the student's current cumulative GPA and attempted and earned credit count, it is numerically plausible that in the coming semester the required semester and cumulative GPA and attempted and earned credit requirements per the policies and table outlined in the Warren Wilson College Catalog, section 1.04.7 can be achieved. This information has been reveiwed with me and my questions were addressed.*
Minimum Credit Hour Completion Rate Requirement At the end of each academic semester a student (undergraduate and graduate) must earn a minimum of 67% of the hours for which they were registered at the end of add/drop. All students must also complete 67% of their cumulative attempted hours, as this will show “pace” toward completion of their degree. (This completion requirement measures both semester and cumulative hours and is referred to as “pace.” Pace defines the rate at which a student must progress to ensure educational program completion within the maximum time frame.) Number of hours student attempted x 67% = Number of hours students must successfully complete to make SAP This information has been reveiwed with me and my questions were addressed.*
In order to make "Satisfactory Academic Progress" as defined in the Warren Wilson College Catalog, section 1.04.7, a minimum of the following number of academic credits need to be both attempted and earned during the semester*
1.04.7 - Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards Minimum Grade Point Average Undergraduate students’ semester GPA must meet standards established by the Warren Wilson College Catalog. If the semester and/or cumulative GPA falls below the minimum standard, the student will be placed on Financial Aid Warning for the next semester. If the student continues not to meet the GPA standard, they will be placed on Financial Aid Probation and must submit an appeal (this is the academic plan that accompanies the appeal). This information has been reveiwed with me and my questions were addressed. - Copy
At the end of the semester the student’s academic record will be evaluated by the Financial Aid Office for meeting the requirements of "Satisfactory Academic Progress" as outlined in the Warren Wilson College Catalog, section 1.04.7 and/or additional conditions regarding SAP progress and timeline. If there are additional conditions they are noted in the email (sent to the student and the Financial Aid Office) that accompanies this form. I understand the conditions of the academic requirements in this Financial Aid Appeal Academic Plan, as well as the process for evaluating my academic record for Satisfacrory Academic Progress at the end of this coming semester.*
