Your SAP GPA is different from your Academic GPA. All grades from any previous institution(s) and semesters are included in your SAP and do count against you. Your Academic GPA will always be higher since you can make up grades and are allotted withdrawals. However on your SAP, everything counts, including F’s and W’s.
At this time we are waiting for further guidance from the Department of Education on how completely withdrawing or dropping a class will impact Satisfactory Academic Progress. Withdrawing from a course has the same effect as an “F” on your SAP GPA.
Please note that if you withdraw from a course you may be responsible for any charges if financial aid is impacted. As long as you keep your SAP GPA above the 2.0, and are successfully completing at least 67% of your attempted courses, then you will still be eligible for financial aid. If you fall below the 2.0, or the 67% requirements, you will be placed on a warning. If you are already on warning then you will be placed on financial aid suspension.
I am having difficulty with the transition to online format, and am struggling with my grades. What resources are available to me to help with this so that I can remain in good standing?
If you are having difficulty, email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone can set up a time to conference with you.
In the past, vouchers were once a requirement to buy books using my financial aid. Has the procedure changed?
Visit the Midland College Bookstore website and check your course materials for summer and fall semesters.
The Financial Aid Office no longer issues vouchers to the students. Instead, when checking out online, you have the option of applying financial aid to your balance with the bookstore if it is available to you.
In the past, I was required to submit an additional application to receive aid for the summer. Has this changed?
The Department of Education has announced the pausing of interest on federal loans to support impacted student borrowers. The interest accrual pause will apply to all federal loans, including those participating in income-driven repayment plans, those in forbearance, federally-held Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP) loans, and federally-held Perkins loans. The interest waiver will be automatic, retroactively dated, though Department of Education officials said it may take time to operationalize. For additional information please follow this nasfaa.org link.
