Satisfactory Academic Progress for Undergraduates

The University of Nebraska at Kearney is required to establish minimum academic standards that students must meet to be eligible or maintain eligibility for federal and state financial aid, including grants, loans and college work study.

  • Students who are receiving financial aid or who seek financial aid in the future are required to meet these minimum standards.
    • Failure to meet these standards for two consecutive semesters (fall, spring, summer) means the student is no longer eligible to receive financial aid.
  • Students must meet both a qualitative requirement (GPA) and a quantitative requirement (number of hours successfully completed) to maintain eligibility.
  • Undergraduate students are eligible to receive aid for only 180 credit hours – this is referred to as the maximum time frame requirement.

**The requirements will change for Fall 2019. If you are new to UNK in Fall 2019, please see below.
