Financial Aid

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) is committed to ensuring students’ academic success. The Higher Education Act of 1965 as amended requires UALR to establish a policy that will enforce academic progress standards to ensure students receiving federal financial aid are making timely progress to complete their intended program of study.

  • Academic records for undergraduate and graduate students will be reviewed after each period of enrollment (fall, spring, and summer) to confirm that students are making satisfactory academic progress
  • Academic records for law students will be reviewed annually in August
  • All student records will be reviewed.
  • Federal financial aid recipients will be notified by letter if any of the following three academic progress standards of GPA, progress completion, and time frame are not met.
