Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy:
Appeals for Exceptions to the Policy

All appeals for exceptions to the policy must be submitted in writing using the Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal Form with all appropriate documentation and an unofficial copy of your most recent academic transcript if from another school other than Tech that was not furnished on admission.   Please note that B.O.S.S. on-line transcript printout is not acceptable; unofficial transcripts are available in the Registrar’s Office. Please do not ask the Registrar's Office to hand-deliver transcripts to the Financial Aid Office. Suggesting that the Financial Aid Office contact doctors, professors, or other persons for additional information is not considered adequate documentation.

Appeals must be received no later than the deadline for the specific quarter that you are requesting eligibility. We recommend that you submit an appeal as soon as knowledge of the deficiency occurs so that the appeal can be evaluated within a reasonable timeframe. A student may appeal a total of three times during an entire academic career at Louisiana Tech University. Appeal Deadlines are as follows:
