Graduate Programs Open House

Satisfactory Progress Appeals are open for students

Struggling academically? This appeal form allows you to petition to keep your federal aid.

The Financial Aid office will soon be evaluating students to make sure they are meeting the federal government’s satisfactory academic progress (SAP) requirement for federal financial aid.

To keep your federal financial aid in good standing: 

  • Undergraduate students must maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA and a 67 percent completion percentage. 
  • Graduate students must maintain a 3.0 GPA and a 67 percent completion percentage. 

GPA can be found in the Final Grades area of WINGS Express.

The completion percentage is the number of credit hours you’ve completed divided by your total number of credit hours attempted.

If you do not meet SAP requirements:

  • You will receive a notification to your Wright State email.
  • The Eligibility Requirements screen on WINGS Express will change to reflect your status.
  • To continue to receive financial aid, you will need to submit an appeal.

The Satisfactory Progress Appeal form can be found in WINGS Express in the Eligibility Requirements screen. This appeal will need supporting statements from you about what happened in your previous semesters to cause you to fall into bad standing, what has changed since then, and your plan for success going forward. You will also need a letter of support from a third party, such as an academic advisor. 

A successful appeal will allow you to receive financial aid.

Please note, SAP is different from the requirements to maintain any scholarships you are receiving, so if you are concerned about where you stand with your scholarships, all requirements are listed on RaiderConnect’s scholarship pages, or you can contact scholarships@wright.edu to check your status.

Any questions about the SAP Appeal process or why you were put into bad standing should be directed to RaiderConnect. Call 937-775-4000 or email raiderconnect@wright.edu so we can help you understand the process. 

Raider Connect believes in you and is always here to help you on your pathway to success!
