The Office of Scholarships and Student Aid is required to monitor the progress of students who receive federal financial aid. To receive consideration for financial aid at North Carolina Central University, students must be in compliance with federal regulations regarding satisfactory academic progress. These regulations include semester hours attempted and earned, cumulative grade point average, the cumulative rate of completion, and the length of the program.
Undergraduate students must successfully complete 67% of their cumulative attempted hours and maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. Graduate and professional students must successfully earn 75% of their cumulative attempted hours and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Students who are not meeting the standards will have to file a financial aid appeal with the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid to gain eligibility for financial aid. This financial aid appeal is separate from any required academic appeal.
