In addition to meeting the general academic requirements of the university, student athletes must meet all academic requirements, including those relating to satisfactory progress toward a degree, set forth in the legislation of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) and of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
Student Financial Aid Recipients
In addition to meeting the general academic requirements of the university, applicants for student financial aid funds must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress to receive, or to continue to receive, assistance through federal, state, and institutional student aid programs. Descriptions of these Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements for distinct classifications of Auburn students are available from the Office of Student Financial Services.
All VA eligibles (Chapters 30, 31, 32, 35 and 106), in addition to meeting the general academic requirements set forth by the university, must maintain satisfactory academic progress as approved by the State Approving Agency of the State of Alabama, Department of Education. Such standards are as follows: Any undergraduate VA eligible must have a 2.0 GPA after the student has earned 120 hours at Auburn University. This will be checked at each term’s end and the VA benefits of any VA eligible not meeting this requirement would be terminated. Separate standards of progress apply to graduate students as outlined in the Graduate School section of this Bulletin.
