F I NANC I A L A I D SUSP ENS I ON
Any student on financial aid warning who fails to meet satisfactory academic progress standards at the end of
the warning period (does not appeal) or at the end of the probation appeal (appeal is granted) will be placed
on financial aid suspension. Students on financial aid suspension are not prohibited from enrollment, but no
financial aid assistance is available for payment of school expenses. Until coursework at HSU is completed and
standards are attained, a suspended student remains ineligible for financial aid of any kind.
F I NANC I A L A I D APP EA LS
A student on warning or suspension may submit a written appeal to the Financial Aid Appeals Committee for
reinstatement to probation or eligible status. Mitigating circumstances such as medical/health issues, serious
illness or death of an immediate family member, or other unusual personal concerns may result in failure to meet
academic standards. An appeal may be considered in such cases if the student is counseled by an advisor or the
registrar, and proper steps are taken to remedy the situation in the upcoming semester. The appeal must include
the reason you were unable to meet SAP and how you plan to achieve SAP in the upcoming semester. The appeal
will not be considered if this information is not included in your appeal.
Appeals must be submitted to the Financial Aid Appeals Committee, and must be received by August 10 for the
Fall semester and January 10 for the Spring semester.
Appeals must be submitted in writing to:
Financial Aid Appeals Committee
