Lane’s Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards ensure that students meet the minimum requirements to support the successful completion of a certificate, degree, or transfer. 

Lane identifies students who have not met the terms of satisfactory academic progress as follows:

Students who do not hold a cumulative GPA of 2.0 and/or complete at least 67% of attempted credits at the end of the term.




Good Standing: 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA and 67% term rate of progress.

Academic Warning: Students who complete less than 2.0 cumulative GPA and/or less than 67% rate of progress for the first time.

Academic Suspension: Failure to meet Good standing for a student can result in a student being unable to use regulated funding sources. Academically suspended students are disallowed from using regulated funding sources such as federal financial aid, or other applicable aid, or veterans benefits until academic progress can be achieved.

Academic Probation: Student is on academic warning and has a future term of less than 2.0 GPA and/or 67% rate of progress. When using Federal Financial Aid an approved appeal will allow them to continue receiving aid while regaining eligibility. A student may not meet the terms of SAP if they do not meet the requirements at the end of the following term or, in a future term. Students are notified if they have not met the SAP requirements via email to their student email account, and on their financial aid portal.

Satisfactory Academic Progress is reviewed at the end of each term.

Once a student has not met the terms of academic progress for three consecutive or non-consecutive terms, their funding source will be suspended until academic progress can be achieved. Students may choose to continue using private pay funds in order to return to a good standing status, or in general if no federal funding source has been established.

Regaining Eligibility: 

  1. Federal Financial Aid: Students can submit an appeal to the financial aid office. Students who receive an approved appeal are placed on probation status, until they regain eligibility. Eligibility is defined as achieving 67% rate of progress and cumulative 2.0 GPA. Students who are denied are suspended from financial aid.
  2. Students using VA educational benefits will be required to follow all Lane's GPA requirements in accordance with the Academic Standards outlined in the catalog. Each student applying for VA educational benefits will receive a copy of the Standards of Academic Progress for Using VA Benefits at the time of initial certification. These standards apply to all eligible persons using educational benefits administered by the VA.
  3. Students who are privately funded can continue and are recommended to meet with Early Outreach in support of future academic success.

All students, regardless of funding source will receive early outreach interventions as identified by Lane's Early Outreach efforts.
