- Satisfactory Academic Progres (SAP): The mission of the U.S. Department of Education is to assist students who are academically progressing towards their goal of attaining a degree or certificate. To assure this goal is met, the U.S. Department of Education requires colleges to determine whether financial aid is being utilized in the most effective way. It is the responsibility of the STCC's Student Financial Services Department to monitor each financial aid applicant's academic work and to confirm the student's academic success and continued financial aid eligibility or to determine if a student is not academically progressing toward the goal of degree attainment. This also includes credits not paid for by financial aid. Click the link above to view the full SAP policy.
