Students of CMMC are required to successfully complete all scheduled courses before advancing to the next level and/or semester. It is the policy of CMMC to monitor the academic progress of a student in his or her program of study. Satisfactory academic progress (SAP) is measured at the end of each semester.
In accordance with the schools’ academic promotion policies, a student is considered to be making SAP if he or she achieves a passing grade of no less than a “C” in all enrolled courses within the curriculum plan and receives a clinical performance grade of “Satisfactory” in each course where applicable. The student must also complete the education program requirements within 150% of the published length of the program. Please refer to the academic promotion policy of each education program for further detail.
If a student fails to make SAP, the student’s financial aid is cancelled and the student is withdrawn from the program entirely. As a result, CMMC does not offer an appeal process by which a student who is not meeting SAP standards can petition the school for reconsideration of his or her eligibility of FSA funds.
A student who is withdrawn from the program must reapply for admission. A student who previously failed to make SAP is given a financial aid warning at readmission. The student may continue to receive FSA funds for one payment period after re-admittance. Should the student fail to meet SAP after that payment period, he or she loses his or her financial aid eligibility and is again withdrawn from the education program. A student is only permitted one re-admission to a CMMC program of study.
