Federal regulations require that all students receiving financial aid from Title IV funds maintain satisfactory academic progress.

To comply with this requirement the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA (DGSOM) has adopted a Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy that applies to all medical students receiving financial aid.  Students who fail to meet the satisfactory academic progress requirements become ineligible to receive Title IV (Federal loans) and institutional aid (DGSOM medical school scholarships and loans) until they are in compliance with these requirements. If you need to appeal, please see the 2022 -2023 SAP appeal form.

Note:  Satisfactory Academic Progress is not equivalent to the category of "Good Academic/Professional Standing."  The designation of Satisfactory Academic Progress is defined in the SAP Policy (linked above), and may apply to students who are placed in the category of "Academic/Professional Probation." 

Please note: that policies are subject to change.
