Definition of Satisfactory Progress

Definition of Satisfactory Progress

Students must make satisfactory academic progress each semester to continue to receive benefits.  Satisfactory academic progress is determined by the following cumulative grade point average (GPA) standard.


Cumulative Credit Hours   Minimum Cumulative GPA
1 to 11 hours   1.50
12 to 22 hours   1.70
23 to 33 hours   1.85
34 or more   2.00


The cumulative GPA standard includes all attempted credit hours as defined by the LLCC academic satisfactory progress policy and determined by the LLCC academic transcript, including those that veterans' benefits did not pay for.



If students do not make satsifactory progress, they are placed on veterans' warning for their next smester of enrollment.  Warning puts students on notice that they are in danger of losing their veterans' benefits if the GPA standard is not met at the end of the warning semester.  During a warning term, student may continue to receive veterans' benefits.

At the end of a warning semester, if the student still fails to meet the cumulative GPA, but receives at least a 2.5 semester GPA, the student will be placed on continued warning.  If the student fails to meet the 2.5 semester GPA at the end of a warning semester, his/her veterans' benefits will be suspended.

Students whose performance was affected by unusual circumstances may appeal.
