minor is that of the parent who was granted custody by the court; or, if custody
was not granted, the residence continues to be that of the father. If both parents
are dead, the residence of the minor is that of the last surviving parent at the time
of that parents death unless the minor lives with a legal guardian of his/her per-
son duly appointed by a proper court of Mississippi, in which case his/her resi-
dence becomes that of the guardian.

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS
Students who receive financial aid at Delta State University must conform to the
standards for Satisfactory Academic Progress set by the University and outlined
here. These standards encourage students to successfully complete their educa-
tional goals in a timely manner. It is important to remember that this SAP policy is
administered by the Office of Student Financial Assistance and is separate from
the Scholastic Standards administered by the Office of the Provost/Vice President
for Academic Affairs.
These guidelines apply to ALL Title IV aid: Federal Pell Grants, Federal
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal
Work Study, Federal Stafford Loans, and Federal PLUS Loans.
The minimum academic standards an undergraduate student must meet in order
to receive financial assistance are illustrated in this chart:
Minimum Qualitative Academic Standards
Minimum Quantitative Standards
Overall Hours Attempted
DSU Grade Point Average
Ratio of Hours Passed
1. Students who receive financial assistance but who do not successfully com-
plete all hours attempted may be placed on financial aid hold/suspension.
Ws and Fs are not considered successful completions.
2. Students who receive financial assistance and then withdraw from school
will be placed on financial aid suspension. Students on suspension are not
eligible to receive financial aid. Ws and Fs are not considered successful
3. Students who have earned Is and IPs are ineligible for financial aid the fol-
lowing term because an I and an IP are not considered passing grades.
Financial aid will be reinstated once the student completes the course
requirements and receives a grade. Should the student fail to obtain grades
in the courses in question, he will be responsible for all fees.
4. Financial aid is not awarded for audits; therefore, a student may be required
to repay any financial aid awarded for a course that is changed to an audit at
a later time during the term if that change results in the students enrollment
being less than full-time.
5. Students may use financial aid funds to cover the first repeat of a course. Up
to 12 hours may be repeated during the undergraduate career under these
financial aid guidelines. Ineligibility for all or a portion of financial aid funds
based on this policy cannot be appealed. A class that a student registers for
and subsequently drops is included in the number of repeats of a course.
6. Students who have been granted full admission with academic deficiencies
must participate in a Summer Developmental Program to remove those aca-
demic deficiencies. Financial assistance is available for this program. If defi-
ciencies are still evident after completion of the Summer Developmental
program, a student will not be eligible for re-admission, and any financial
assistance offered for an upcoming term will be cancelled.
7. Students admitted to Delta State University in the Over 21 program are NOT
ELIGIBLE for federal financial aid until they have successfully completed 12
semester hours with at least a 2.0 grade point average at Delta State.
Additional information about this program can be obtained in the
8. Federal regulations require that a student complete the requirements for one
undergraduate degree within a 150% time frame. For purposes of monitor-
ing satisfactory academic progress within this 150% period, we have
assumed that 130 hours are required for an undergraduate degree; therefore,
195 hours attempted would constitute the maximum (150%) allowable
