Satisfactory Academic Progress: Overview

Academic standards in effect since September 1995 are used to assess satisfactory progress and to determine probationary status or the necessity to dismiss. The academic policies in this section define minimum satisfactory academic progress for all students at Purchase College.

Students in the BFA, MusB, MFA, and MM programs must meet these collegewide academic standards as well as the general professional standards, including professional conduct standards, governing these degree programs, and the academic and professional standards of the student’s school/conservatory and program.

Satisfactory academic progress (SAP) standards for financial aid (e.g., federal Title IV aid, state aid, and other loan programs) vary from those stated in this section; please consult the Office of Student Financial Services, (914) 251-7000, for specific guidelines. However, because the criteria for satisfactory academic progress affect all students, whether or not they receive financial aid, all students should be familiar with the standards in this section.
