Financial Aid Policies
Satisfactory Academic Progress
Federal regulations (CFR 668.34) require Seton Hall Law to establish, publish, and apply standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for Federal Title IV financial aid eligibility. The purpose of measuring and enforcing these standards is to ensure financial aid recipients’ progress towards degree completion using both qualitative (2.0 GPA) and quantitative methods (pace/maximum timeframe) in accordance with federal regulations.
Students must meet or exceed these requirements in order to remain eligible for federal financial aid (Federal Work-Study, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Direct/Graduate PLUS loan). Specific institutional, state, or privately funded donor scholarships may require a higher GPA than listed in this policy for federal financial aid programs.
The standards of academic progress outlined in this policy are for the purpose of evaluating eligibility to continue receiving financial aid. They do not replace or modify academic standards required for continued enrollment at Seton Hall Law.
Student Loan Code of Conduct
In accordance with federal regulations, all Seton Hall Law employees whose job responsibilities include student financial aid, are expected to maintain exemplary standards of professional conduct and must adhere to the Student Loan Code of Conduct.
