The Financial Literacy Workshops are mandatory for any student receiving institutional aid.
We welcome and encourage all students to attend these workshops as they will offer guidance in making sound financial decisions.

Institutional aid includes any funding granted to a student by the university. For example: all athletic aid, choir, band, Residence Hall Advisors, Auxiliary, departmental scholarships, etc.

If you plan on receiving this aid for the following year, you must attend four (4) Financial Literacy workshops this academic year to receive the funding the upcoming year.


 

Satisfactory Academic Progress


Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress

Federal financial aid funds are awarded with the understanding that students will make progress toward their chosen degree. Central State University, as directed by the U.S. Department of Education, has established Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress that students must meet in order to receive Title IV student aid. Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress apply to the following types of federal financial aid: Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Federal Work‐Study, Federal Direct Loan (Subsidized and Unsubsidized), Federal Graduate PLUS Loan, and Federal Parent PLUS Loan.


A student's Satisfactory Academic Progress is determined by two important measures: GPA and pace.

Grade Point Average (GPA) - a minimum 2.0 is required.

Pace - successful completion of 67% of credits attempted.

Additionally, students are required to complete their degree within one and a half times the length of the program.


Please read the SAP Policy for more information on how SAP is determined.
