Satisfactory Academic Progress Instructions

Request for Review of Title IV Aid Eligibility Suspension

Right to Request a Review. If your eligibility for Title IV financial aid has been suspended because you have not met each of three standards of academic progress and you have experienced unusual circumstances that affected your ability to meet those standards, you may request a review of that suspension to the University Committee on Student Financial Services.

Definition. An unusual circumstance for this purpose is a serious situation outside the student’s control that had a negative impact on the student’s ability to complete courses at UNA and maintain satisfactory grades. Freshman or transfer year adjustment, for example, is probably not a truly unusual circumstance.

Review Process. Requests for review are screened and may be considered individually and independently by Committee members who are appointed by UNA’s president. Allow at least 2-3 weeks for complete review and more time during interim periods. If you submit a written request for review, you will be notified in writing of the Committee’s decision, which is final.
