In accordance with federal regulations, Marymount California University maintains a Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy for all students receiving Federal, State and Institutional financial aid funding. To maintain financial aid eligibility, students must show that they are making progress toward successful completion of their chosen degree. Marymount defines this progress as the completion of at least 70 percent of cumulative credits attempted with a term and cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or greater.
Merit scholarships also have GPA requirements. You may find out what these requirements are by visiting the scholarships section of our Web site.
Students also must complete their degree requirements with a maximum time frame of credit hours allowed. Students must complete their degree within 150 percent of the published credit hours required to graduate. For example, an undergraduate student in a program requiring 120 units to complete must meet all graduation requirements by 180 units or six years. An undergraduate student in a program requiring 60 units to complete must meet all graduation requirements by 90 units or 3.5 years.
|Undergraduate||2.00 Cumulative GPA|
|Graduate||3.00 Cumulative GPA|

Important Note: Students unable to meet the standards described will be placed on financial aid warning, and/or suspended from receiving further financial aid assistance. In the event of financial aid suspension, the student will be held responsible to pay any outstanding balance without financial aid. Students may submit a letter of appeal if they have a special circumstance that may affect their academic progress. This appeal must be made within 10 business days of having been notified of suspension.
