State-Mandated Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress (TXG-SAP)


The Texas state legislature has included specific standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress for students receiving TEXAS Grants. As with the general SAP policy, the TXG-SAP has both a quantitative and qualitative standard that must be achieved each year to renew the award.


For students who were awarded a TEXAS Grant prior to 09/01/2005:

The qualitative standard of 2.50 cumulative grade point average (CGPA) must be met by the end of the second year after the first grant was received. The quantitative standards limit the student to 150 credit hours or 6 years whichever comes first. In addition, the student must successfully complete at least 75% of the hours attempted during the most recent academic year.


For students who were awarded their first TEXAS grant after 09/01/2005:

The qualitative standard of 2.50 cumulative grade point average (CGPA) must be met by the end of the second year after the first grant was received. The quantitative standards limit the student to 150 credit hours or 6 years whichever comes first. In addition, the student must successfully complete at least 75% of the hours attempted during the last academic year and must earn at least 24 semester credit hours in the student's most recently completed academic year.
