Financial assistance recipients must be in good academic standing and must be making satisfactory academic progress. Failure to meet established criteria will result in the loss of financial assistance. Details concerning established criteria are available in the Office of Academic Services and Retention, the Office of Student Financial Services, and in our online FAQ.
If a student is officially withdrawing from the University, the W grades will not count toward unsatisfactory credits. (See the section titled “University Withdrawal.”)
Hours attempted constitute all courses a student registers for, including courses in which grades of I and W are given.
Credits earned include all courses in which grades of A, B, C, D, or P are given.
Students who do not make satisfactory progress because they have failed to earn the required credit ratio due to grades of W, F, or I, are not eligible for financial assistance. The federal criteria and New York State Tuition Assistance Program requirements may vary from the University criteria. Please contact the Office of Student Financial Services for more specific information.
