Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy


What is Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)?

The qualitative (grade point average) and quantitative (attendance/or pace) measure of a student’s progress toward completing a program of study.

In other words, the student needs to maintain a certain grade point average, and attendance grade throughout the course of their program.

These grade requirements are set & monitored by the school.

Federal regulations require the establishment of standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) as a general eligibility requirement for financial assistance.   

Brown Aveda Institute’s Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) applies to all students, regardless of the source of tuition payment.

How is Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Monitored?

The qualitative and quantitative components for SAP will be monitored at set intervals in order to provide a formal intervention by the institution, for those who do not meet the SAP standards.

  • Qualitative Measure of Progress - GPA (grade point average) – Brown Aveda Institute minimum - 80%
  • Quantitative Measure of Progress - Attendance (or Pace) – Brown Aveda Institute minimum - 90%
