Students who receive grants, scholarships, loans and federal work-study awards must satisfy minimum academic requirements in order to continue to qualify for these awards. These requirements vary depending on the type of award.
Federal financial aid includes Federal Stafford and PLUS Loans, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Pell Grants, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG) and Federal Work Study (FWS). Students receiving any of these awards must meet the standards described in the Federal Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy.
Any student who receives a Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) Grant must also meet the standards described in the Pennsylvania State Grant Academic Progress Policy.
Student athletes have additional academic requirements and should pay particular attention to the requirements listed in the Student Athlete Handbook.
Drug Law Violations
Federal regulations provide that a student who has been convicted of possession or sale of illegal drugs loses Title IV eligibility for a period of time specified by law. The period of ineligibility depends on whether the conviction was for possession or sale of (including conspiring to sell) illegal drugs. Title IV aid includes federal grants, loans and work study.
