Carle Illinois College of Medicine students are monitored for Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) regardless of their eligibility or intent to receive financial aid. Students who don’t meet SAP requirements may lose their eligibility to receive federal, state, and institutional financial aid. Students are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) to discuss any questions or concerns.


Federal Regulations require that all enrolled students are making satisfactory progress towards completing their degree to be eligible for student aid funds. Carle Illinois College of Medicine students are subject to the University of Illinois Satisfactory Academic Policy (SAP) policy that is available at https://www.osfa.illinois.edu/process/academic-progress.


The Office of Student Financial Aid will review a student’s progress at the end of each semester.

If a student is not making progress, based on the guidelines within the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s student academic progress policy, they will be placed on warning status. The student will be notified of this warning and will still be eligible to receive federal, state or institutional aid for the upcoming semester.

After the warning semester, if a student is determined to not be making progress they may lose federal, state or institutional financial aid. A student has the ability to submit an appeal.
