SAP Maximum Time to Completion


The SAP Maximum Time Frame to complete a program cannot exceed 150% of the published length of the students’ active program and is measured in credit hours, this applies to graduate and undergraduate programs. For example, if a program consists of 120 credit hours, the student must successfully complete the program after attempting no more than 180 credit hours.

Students who are unable to complete his/her program within the SAP maximum time limits and need more time to complete his/her program may file a Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) appeal by following the procedures given in the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy. SAP Maximum Timeframe extensions are determined on a case-by-case basis.
