Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
Updated and important Information – September 2016

College records are permanent; therefore, it’s important to maintain satisfactory academic progress while enrolled at ACC, even while in high school. Failure to do so may affect future college financial aid and/or transfer eligibility.

All students in the dual credit program must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0.  Students who fall below a cumulative GPA of 2.0 will lose their tuition waiver for one probationary semester.  Failure to maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 for two semesters (consecutive or nonconsecutive) will result in a student being ineligible for dual credit tuition and fees waiver.  Dual credit students who do not maintain good academic standing are additionally subject to further disciplinary action as outlined in the ACC Student Handbook. 

The fall schedule can be found at
