  • My Learning Plan helps you KEEP your Financial Aid

    If you use Financial Aid dollars to pay for your education, you have to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements every term to keep it. My Learning Plan helps you meet each of the three SAP requirements:

    Maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average

    Fact: Students who use My Learning Plan maintain a higher GPA.

    Why?
    Having a plan for which classes you need to complete each term keeps you focused on the finish line and motivated to do what it takes to make the grade and stay on track.

    Did you know?
    Grades of A, B, C, D, F, and WF are included in your Financial Aid GPA. Grades of W, X, I, and P are not included in your Financial Aid GPA. Learn more.

    Complete at least 67% of attempted classes

    Fact: SPC students who use My Learning Plan complete more classes.

    Why? Mapping out which classes you need to take and when you will take them, makes registration a breeze and gives you a clear picture of how dropping or failing classes can cost you.

    Did you know?
    If you get an F, a WF or withdraw from a class after the last day to drop with a refund, the class is considered uncompleted for Financial Aid purposes? Learn more.

    Finish your degree requirements without taking too many extra classes

    Fact: SPC students who use My Learning Plan save money and finish sooner.

    Why? The plan by my degree requirements feature helps you keep track of exactly which classes you need to take for your chosen degree so you can avoid taking extra classes that don't satisfy degree requirements.

    Did you know?
    You can lose your financial aid if you take more than 150% of the hours your degree requires. For example: if an associate degree takes 60 credit hours to complete, you have to complete the degree requirements without taking more than 90 credit hours of classes. Learn more.
