Academic Progress

Students attending Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology
who wish to receive financial aid, in addition to meeting
other eligibility criteria, must be in good academic standing
and making satisfactory academic progress in their degree
or certificate program. Student academic progress (SAP)
will be reviewed at the end of each term or semester once
grades are posted. Future financial aid disbursements will
be on hold until SAP requirements are satisfied.
a. Quality of Progress: Good Academic Standing
Students requesting aid must maintain the GPA
requirements listed below. If students fall below the
requirements listed below, they will be placed on
financial aid probation for the following semester in
which they must bring up their GPA to the requirements
listed below.
If students fail to meet the requirements during the
probation period, they will lose their financial aid until

they have met the requirements listed below. Loss of
financial aid includes Title IV funding and institutional
funding.
Minimum Required at TSCT Cumulative Credit Hours
Earned:
1.0 .........................Up to 12
1.20.......................13-24
1.40.......................25-36
1.60.......................37-48
1.80.......................49-60
2.00 ......................61 or greater
b. Quantity of Progress: Pace of Unit Completion
TSCT students must complete at least two-thirds
(67%) of all units in which they originally enroll from
the time of first attendance in their program. Thus, a
first-term TSCT student who originally enrolls in nine
units, withdraws from three units, and successfully
completes the remaining six units, would be meeting
the quantitative measure requirement since the student
did pass at least two-thirds (67%) of the units in which
he/she originally enrolled.
Students requesting aid must make progress toward a
degree as follows:
* Full-time: 12 units per term and/or 24 units per year
(complete average of eight per term)
* Three-quarter time: Nine units per term and/or 18
units per year (complete average of six per term)
* Half time: Six units per term and / or 12 units per
year (complete average of four per term)
The following grades are considered to demonstrate
satisfactory course completion: "A," "B," "C," "D," and Pass.
These grades do not demonstrate successful course
completion: "F," No Pass, Incomplete, Withdrawal, and In
Progress.
Incomplete grades will not count toward student
completion rate (pace) in the term in which they are
received but will be evaluated the following term.
If students fall below the cumulative minimum 67%,
they will be placed on financial aid probation; such
students will be given the following term (semester) in
which to raise their cumulative completion rate above
the required 67%.
If students fail to meet the requirements during the
probation period, they will lose their financial aid until
they have met the requirements listed below. Loss of
financial aid includes Title IV funding and institutional
funding.
