What is Satisfactory Academic Progress (S.A.P.)?
UTB monitors academic progress to identify students who are experiencing difficulty with their courses. Satisfactory Academic Progress (S.A.P.) is based upon two components:
- Course Completion
To meet S.A.P. requirements, you must:
- Maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA
- Maintain a 70% cumulative completion rate
If you meet the (S.A.P.) requirements:
- You will be considered a student in good standing
- You may enroll in more than 12 credit hours per semester
If you fail to meet either the GPA or completion requirement:
- You will be placed on probation
- You will remain on probation until S.A.P. requirements are met
- You will only be allowed to enroll in 12 credit hours per semester
- You should contact your academic advisor and/or your faculty mentor
- You will be required to sign an Academic Success Contract with an academic advisor outlining your responsibilities. You will be encouraged to meet with your professors and/or directed to Learning Enrichment at the Student Success Center for tutoring
- You will not be eligible to register unless you complete the Academic Success Contract.
Students who earn at least a 2.0 GPA and 70 percent completion for the course work that semester can continue on probation or return to good standing if their cumulative GPA is 2.0 and their cumulative completion rate is 70 percent. Students who earn below a 2.0 GPA and 70 percent completion that semester are suspended and must wait until the end of the next long semester to return.
If you are returning from suspension:
- You will be placed on conditional probation
- You may enroll in a maximum of 7 credit hours
- You must meet with an academic advisor
- You must fulfill the terms of your Academic Success Contract designed to help you succeed
