Financial aid consists of federal work study, grants, loans, and scholarships that are distributed through the financial aid department to assist students with their educational expenses. See the financial aid website at http://www.westga.edu/finaid/ for detailed information.
In order to receive financial aid at the University of West Georgia, graduate students must meet certain academic standards. See the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy at the Financial Aid website at http://www.westga.edu/financialAid/index_2959.php for details.
Appealing the Loss of Financial Aid Due to Not Meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards
A student who has been placed on FA Suspension or Maximum Time Frame may appeal the SAP status decision only in cases of extenuating circumstances. Examples of extenuating circumstances for which a student may file an SAP appeal may include a student’s injury or illness, serious illness or death of an immediate family member, or other special circumstances. Each SAP appeal will be reviewed individually and decisions are made on a case-by-case basis as outlined in the procedures given below. For more information, see Appeals in the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy at the Financial Aid website at http://www.westga.edu/financialAid/index_2959.php.
