**Standard of Progress**

All students at Lewis College of Business must progress
satisfactorily

towards completion of a chosen academic or vocational program.

Lewis College of Business is required by federal law to define and enforce

standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress. The Guidelines

are established to encourage students to successfully complete courses

for which aid is received.

Students receiving financial aid will be evaluated at the
end of

each academic year (fall and winter semesters). The qualitative component

of the policy will evaluate a student’s grades at the end of

each academic year while the quantitative component will measure

the maximum time frame for completion.

In order to receive any Federal Title IV funds (Federal
Direct

Loans, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Pell, Federal Supplemental Educational

Opportunity Grants and Federal College Work-Study); a student

must maintain satisfactory academic progress as outlined below:

A student is required to complete his/her degree and/or
certificate

requirements at LCB within 150% of the time that it is scheduled

to take for a student to graduate. Therefore, a full-time undergraduate

student pursuing a two -year course of study may be allowed

up to 6 semesters to complete a degree if the student is attending full

time each semester. Students must be enrolled in a degree program

and must be enrolled at least halftime in order to quality for Federal

Direct Loans. Students, who are enrolled less than half time, may receive

Pell Grants. The time frame for completion will be pro-rated

accordingly. A student enrolled in less than 6 hours must pass all

hours attempted with the minimum required cumulative grade point

average.
