Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) means that a student is proceeding in a positive manner toward fulfilling the requirements of the course in progress. NYC Global Center utilizes a 2.0 grade point average as the minimum standard of academic achievement and then takes into account how well a student has adhered to the Attendance Policy before determining SAP.
If at the end of a course a student does not maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 nor adheres to the Attendance Policy, the student will receive a warning letter and will be asked to sign a Student Failure Confirmation form. The student is placed on academic probation and is given one more session to remove the probation. If the student fails to remove the probation during that time, he/she is dismissed. A student who fails to earn a grade point average of 2.0 must repeat the same level for the next session.
It is also important to note that if a student has only achieved the minimum grade point average for good academic standing, he/she is given a choice of whether to repeat a particular course or simply move on to the next level of the IEP.
