Satisfactory Academic Progress

Maintain good grades to Keep your Financial aid

Students are encouraged to maintain good grades while attending Iowa Lakes. Federal regulations require that students make reasonable academic progress to continue receiving financial aid- the official term is Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).

SAP is measured by the student's cumulative grade point average, percentage of credit hours earned in relation to those attempted, and the academic program's length.

To assure that you're making progress toward earning a degree both in terms of the number of hours completed and cumulative GPA, Iowa Lakes requires that you maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA and cumulative pace of 67 percent.
