Maintaining academic progress is an essential step on a student’s financial aid pathway to success. The awarding of financial aid is based on Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP); therefore, the Asbury University Office of Financial Aid monitors the passing rate and cumulative grade point averages of all students receiving aid. It is important that students review and understand the Academic Progress and Financial Aid expectations.
The financial aid disbursement process begins after the official drop/add deadline for each semester. The disbursement process may take 3-4 weeks beyond the official drop/add deadline. Students who are anticipating a refund should plan ahead and make the necessary arrangements to operate without these funds until the disbursement process is completed.
Financial Aid Pathway Tip!
Changes to a student’s course registration may affect a student’s financial aid eligibility and award. Changes to registration include dropping, adding and withdrawing from courses. These registration actions may change the number of credit hours in which a student is enrolled or impact a student’s satisfactory academic progress. Making registration changes can impact a student’s financial aid status and/or eligibility.
