passed VS. attempted hours?

<p>For summer term, I origionally registered for 4 classes/ 12 credits; then dropped one 3 credit class, and I got NCR for a 4 credit math class. So I earned 5 credits out of 12... </p>

<p>Am I ok though because cumulatively, I have earned 73% of my attempted credits.?</p>

<p>I was also on academic probation, but I got a 3.4 GPA this summer, so I'm good in regards to GPA.</p>

<p>your best bet would be to get the answer from your school. </p>

<p>What is your school's policy regarding academic probation because some policies vary from school to school.</p>

<p>They would be able to also tell you what constitutes maintaining good academic standing. Completing 5 of 12 credits, while getting a NCR (which is the equivalent to an F) can be a cuase of concern.</p>

<p>Yeah, I'll check with them on Monday. They already told me that I need to complete 70% of the origional 12 credits, for financial aid purposes. I suppose I have to file a petition since I fell under 70%...</p>

<p>but I was reearching this a bit, and I was wondering if they consider the cumulative passedd vs attempted hours. NCR does not affect GPA though, so my academic standing is good.</p>

If you were already told you had to complete 70% of the 12 hours, then you probably have a problem as you are well under that. Even if the overall SAP policy is a cumulatuve 70% classes attempted, the probation requirements will be more important (were you on FA probation with a requirement of the probation were that you pass 70% of the attempted hours for the semester). When my son returned to college after a couple of years out, he was put on probation?ary aid because he had dropped his last semester of classes - he still met SAP based on his previous semesters (and he had never applied for aid before). Part of the probationary requirement was that he had to complete a certain % of that semester with a certain GPA. The cumunlative SAP policy did not come into it.</p>

<p>It will depend on your school, so ask them. They are the only ones who can tell you for sure aas they have the final say for that school.</p>

<p>I dont think I had a FA probation.. just academic (and I am out now). I found out about the 70% When I tried to drop 7 credits.. I hadn't realized that 12 credits of summer classes is too much to handle. So, it sounds like I'm in the same boat as your son.. I'll meet SAP (I don't know what that is). I didn't realize the school had control over FA policy.</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

I just have to ask - how do you know you'll meet SAP if you don't know what it is? Satisfactory Academic Progress is defined by the school.</p>

<p>I assumed so based on what I can infer fom the pervious poster's son:</p>
