Academic Progress

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

All students are required to maintain good academic standing as a condition of enrollment at Manhattan College and to receive federal, state and institutional aid. The guidelines vary, depending upon the student's grade level and depending upon which form(s) of aid they are receiving. Good academic standing is measured by reviewing a student's quantitative and qualitative progress. The quantitative measurement ensures that students are making progress toward their degree goals, while the qualitative measurement ensures that students are succeeding in their coursework.

  • All undergraduate students are required to have a cumulative average of 1.80 end of freshman year, 1.90 end of sophomore year and then a 2.0 or higher by your junior year while earning a minimum number of credits to demonstrate good academic standing.
  • All undergraduate students are required to maintain a 2.0 for any institutional aid; this does not include scholarship aid.
  • All graduate students are required to have a cumulative average of 3.0 or higher while earning minimum number of credits to demonstrate good academic standing.
  • All undergraduate and graduate students will only have federal aid paid one time for courses they are repeating to improve a course grade.
  • Each School at Manhattan College may implement additional guidelines for satisfactory academic progress in their programs.

In additions to Manhattan College academic progress policy for all students, students who receive financial aid are subject to academic progress guidelines as outlined below:
