Providing Dollars for OC Students

What is Olympic College's Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy?

A student attending Olympic College must meet quantitative and qualitative standards to maintain eligibility for federal, state, and institutional financial aid. To meet SAP, students are required to have a minimum GPA of 2.0 (qualitative) and complete all the classes they enroll in within 150% of the program length (125% for state aid) (quantitative). This rule applies for every quarter that a student attends Olympic College. 

Summary of SAP Measures

The following chart indicates the required standards and the financial aid status for each term. These standards apply to all terms of enrollment regardless of whether the student did or did not receive financial aid.
