Student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress status for Fall 2013 will be updated by Monday, January 6, 2014. You will receive an email sent to your PNC Email and personal email address letting you know when your status has been updated for the Spring 2014 semester. A message will also be posted to self-service Banner (SSB) related to your status. Students placed in an “Ineligible” status will also receive notification via U.S. Mail. Students with extenuating circumstances beyond their control may submit an appeal to the Financial Aid Office explaining their circumstances. The priority submission deadline for an appeal is Monday, January 20, 2014.
Both Federal statues and U.S. Department of Education regulations require institutions of higher education to establish minimum standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress for students receiving federal aid. In addition, all state program regulations (Frank O’Bannon Grant, Twenty-First Century Scholars, etc.) require students to meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress criteria established for federal student aid. If you have any questions related to your status, contact the Financial Aid Office at (219) 785-5460.
