Mandated by federal regulations, satisfactory academic progress is evaluated after each fall, spring and summer term. Although all three terms consist of multiple parts of term, including sessions that range from four to 12 weeks in the summer and eight to 16 weeks in the fall and spring, the SAP evaluation will only occur at the end of the full term.
