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.
Attempted Hours (AHRS): 119

Her % of Earned Hours (Completion Rate): 68.06%
She is above the minimum and therefore eligible for financial aid based on % of earned hours.
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.
