The Higher Learning Advocates kick off their Widen the Path campaign by expressing their strong support for a Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) reset, which would maximize college students’ persistence and success in their postsecondary education by supporting them in maintaining or regaining SAP eligibility under the Higher Education Act (HEA). Doing so would empower so-called “SAP-ed out” students—who lost access to federal student aid due to SAP requirements–to rejoin the higher learning pathway by regaining eligibility for federal student aid.
