                      How to Calculate your Percent of Earned Hours (Completion Rate)

    In accordance with the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy for a student to be eligible to
    receive financial aid they must have a minimum 67% earned hours (completion rate) in
    addition to the appropriate grade point average (GPA).

    Financial aid includes: Federal Pell Grant; Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG); National
    “SMART” Grant; Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant; Federal Work Study; Federal
    Perkins Loan; Federal Stafford Loan (subsidized and unsubsidized); Federal PLUS Loan; William D.
    Ford Federal Direct Loan (subsidized and unsubsidized); William D. Ford Federal Direct PLUS Loan;
    Tuition Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS); Louisiana Educational Assistance Program
    (LEAP); Louisiana “Go Grant” Need-Based Assistance Program; SU Grant Programs; SU Foundation
    Programs; SU Scholarships; and SU Out-of-State Fee Waiver.

    To figure out your completion rate take your number of cumulative earned hours and divides it by
    the number of cumulative attempted hours.

    For example:

    Jane Doe
    Attempted Hours (AHRS): 119
    Earned Hours (EHRS): 81
    Her % of Earned Hours (Completion Rate): 68.06%
    She is above the minimum and therefore eligible for financial aid based on % of earned hours.

    John Doe
    Attempted Hours (AHRS): 90
    Earned Hours (EHRS): 60
    His % of Earned Hours (Completion Rate): 66.67%
    He is below the minimum and therefore ineligible for financial aid based on % of earned hours. You
    cannot round the completion rate.
