Students removed from financial aid can appeal that decision to the SGCS SAP Appeals Committee. The appeal must be prepared in writing and be accompanied by appropriate supporting documents.

Reasons that may be acceptable for the appeal are:

  1. Serious illness or accident on the part of the student. An appeal of this type will normally require a supporting statement from the doctor.
  2. Death or serious illness in the immediate family.
  3. Other special circumstances

Appeals must be received by the Director of Financial Aid for SGCS no later than 14 days following the receipt of the SAP Suspension notice. If the appeal is approved the student is required to complete one term on probation with a full-time load of coursework and maintain the minimum grade level GPA in the following term. In circumstances where a student may not be able to meet the SAP requirements in the one term probationary period, the university may provide an academic plan under the guidance of the Financial Aid Office. The academic plan would be individualized to the student and be reviewed over multiple terms of enrollment. The goal of the academic plan would be to bring the student into compliance with the institution’s SAP standards. Students are limited to a total of two appeals while enrolled at Trevecca.
