At this time, we are awaiting further guidance from federal and state agencies, as well as the result of pending legislation, that will provide us with more detailed information as to what options are available to us for evaluating Satisfactory Academic Progress in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, we are currently unable to provide specifics about how choosing the Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory option for an individual course will impact scholarships and financial aid.
However, students who do not meet Satisfactory Academic Progress or specific scholarship or grant renewal requirements will continue to have the ability to submit an appeal for consideration. Academic issues related to COVID-19 are certainly an acceptable basis for an appeal.
For now, we encourage you to make choices regarding Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grading, Q-dropping, or withdrawing based on what is best for you academically, and not based on any impact to your financial aid. More information will be provided as soon as we receive additional guidance.
