Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal

If you fail to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements for financial aid, you may lose financial aid eligibility. You can appeal your SAP status for reinstatement of financial aid eligibility if you had mitigating circumstances that impacted your academic success, such as:

  • Serious injury of yourself and/or your immediate family;
  • Serious extended medical or mental condition of yourself and/or your immediate family;
  • Death of a close family member.
  • Other extenuating circumstance(s) out of your control or undue hardship that prohibits the successful completion of course work. (Note: adjustment to college or having a busy job would not qualify.)

If you have had mitigating circumstances out of your control, please take the following steps to appeal for reconsideration of your financial aid eligibility:

  1. Print and complete the appeal form.
  2. Complete the personal statement below.
  3. Provide supporting documentation for your circumstance.
  4. Submit the appeal form, personal statement and supporting documentation through our secure document uploader. Please submit completed appeal by the midpoint of the semester.
  5. Allow 2-3 weeks for the appeal to be processed once your signed appeal form, personal statement, and supporting documentation have been received.
  6. Appeal decisions are sent to your UNT EagleConnect email account..

If your appeal is denied, please contact Student Accounting for payment options. Additionally, we encourage you to research Private Loan options if you need assistance with your educational expenses.
