Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)


Satisfactory Academic Progress is measured in three areas:

  1. Minimum Cumulative Financial Aid GPA – Qualitative)
  2. Completion Rate (Pace) – Quantitative
  3. Maximum Time Frame

Students must meet the requirements in ALL THREE areas each term to maintain eligibility for financial assistance.  State of Georgia financial assistance program regulations (Tuition Equalization Grant – TEG, HOPE Scholarship, Zell Miller Scholarship, Dual-Enrollment, etc.) require students to meet the SAP criteria established for federal student aid.

At the end of each term, an evaluation will occur to determine if a student is meeting SAP to receive financial assistance at Georgia Military College. All students in approved degree programs are evaluated whether they received financial assistance in prior terms or not.
