The academic progress of all federal financial aid recipients must meet minimum standards set forth by the Federal Government in order for the student to receive federal financial aid. Minimum standards for Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (FASAP) apply to all recipients of federal and/or state assistance. Brown University ensures that all federal aid recipients are meeting FASAP each academic year following both the fall and spring semesters
The College's "academic standing" refers to the number of courses you are expected to complete each semester as you progress toward your degree starting with your first semester of enrollment at Brown. If you fall below academic progress requirements, you will be placed on “academic warning” or "serious warning” or potentially separated from the University for one or more semesters, depending on the extent of your credit shortfall. Generally, you will remain eligible for financial aid if The Committee on Academic Standing (CAS) allows you to remain enrolled at Brown University.
