SAP Requirements for State Aid Programs

Students must meet all federal Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements to be eligible for federal and/or state financial aid. Students interested in receiving funds from state aid programs must also meet the respective SAP standards published below. 

State Aid Program Cumulative Qualitative (GPA) Quantitative (Credits) Maximum Timeframe
Florida Bright Futures (Undergraduate/Graduate)
Academic Scholars Min. cumulative GPA of 3.0 Earn all paid credits High School graduates prior to 2010: up to 132 credits

High School graduates after 2010: up to 120 credits

Vocational Gold Seal Up to 90 credits
EASE Grant and FSAG Min. cumulative GPA of 2.0 Earn 12 credits (9 credits for nursing students) for each term an award was received during the academic year Up to 9 semesters

A special note about summer enrollment:

Summer credits and grades earned are always counted toward the future academic year in the state SAP calculation. In other words, credits taken during the previous summer are counted toward the calculation, but if a student has failed SAP for state aid during the fall and winter semesters, the student will not be able to impact those deficiencies with attendance during the following summer semester.
