Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal Form

Berklee College of Music is required by federal regulation to ensure that students receiving financial aid make satisfactory academic progress (SAP) towards their degree completion. There are both a qualitative and quantitative standard for SAP including cumulative minimum grade point average, cumulative completion pace, and maximum timeframe allowable for degree completion. The specifics of this policy can be found on our website: Undergraduate Degree Policies or Graduate Degree Policies.

As you were previously informed, you are not meeting the required academic standards and have been placed on SAP suspension. You have the right to appeal your suspension if you had documentable extenuating circumstances that interfered with your academic performance and compromised your ability to meet the required standards.
