Undergraduate Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Estimator

The Undergraduate Student Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Estimator is a tool developed by Student Financial Services (SFS) to evaluate your academic performance against the SAP standards. You may use the SAP Estimator to evaluate academic performance in previous terms; alternately, you may use the SAP Estimator to forecast how future performance may impact your SAP status.

The SAP Estimator does not replace the SAP evaluation conducted by SFS at the end of each term of enrollment. The accuracy of the SAP Estimator depends on the accuracy of the data that you enter. You may want to review the SAP policy prior to using the SAP Estimator to understand each component of the policy and the impact of the information entered in the SAP Estimator on your estimated SAP status.

Instructions for using the SAP Estimator

  1. Disable your browser’s pop-up blocker and any other pop-up blocker (such as on your Google toolbar).

  2. Pull up your unofficial transcript. To do this, log into your SIS Student Center and under Academics, select “Transcript: View Unofficial” in the drop down menu. For Report Type, select Advising Transcript.

  3. Enter your UVA Computing ID (i.e. zyx2w) on the SAP Worksheet. This is a required field.

  4. Refer to your unofficial transcript and enter your credits in the fields provided. For a description of the credits being requested, click on the credit type.

  5. Refer to your unofficial transcript and enter your UVA GPA. This is a required field.

  6. Click on the Calculate button.

The SAP Summary table will populate with your estimated SAP status for each component of the SAP standard.  If the value in the Calculated column does not meet the value in the Required column, your status for that component of the SAP policy will reflect Does Not Meet. A Does Not Meet in any of the rows means that your overall SAP status is also does not meet.

Special Notes

2 Full time undergraduate students have a maximum of 12 terms (including Summer, excluding J-term) in which to complete their program of study. BIS students have a maximum of 15 terms (including Summer, excluding J-term) in which to complete their program of study.
