Financial Aid and Academic Performance
Financial Aid eligibility can be affected by Academic Performance. Failure to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress and/or Academic Standards as set by Duncan School of Law will result Financial Aid probation and possible loss of Financial Aid. Satisfactory Academic Progress is determined by course credit completion rate. A student must pass or complete 67% of attempted credits. Academic Standards are set by Duncan School of Law and currently stands at maintaining an overall GPA of 2.0. Both Academic Progress and Standards are reviewed after each term. At the end of the term in which a student has failed to meet the Academic Progress and/or Standards, the student will be placed on Financial Aid probation for the next consecutive term but Financial Aid will not be affected. Failure to meet the Academic Progress or Standards during the term in which the student is on probation will result in a loss of Financial Aid for the next term or until Academic progress and Standards are met. An appeal may be filed with Financial Aid in order to regain any aid. The appeal will not be considered unless the Duncan School of Law Academic Standards Boards has approved the student for readmission.
Please refer to the Duncan School of Law Handbook for more detailed information regarding Academic Standards and Progress.
