Federal regulations require that all higher education institutions establish and implement a policy to measure whether students receiving financial aid are making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward the completion of a program. This is to make sure that students who receive financial aid are using this money wisely. It is meant to curtail the use of financial aid by students who fail to successfully complete their course work. Failure to meet SAP makes a student ineligible for all institutional, federal, and state financial aid. WTC’s SAP can be found in the current Student Handbook.

Net Price Calculator

In accordance with the Sec. 111 of the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA) and using both student-entered and institution-provided data, the Net Price Calculator allows prospective students to calculate an estimated net price at an institution using the following basic formula: Price of attendance minus grant aid. Based on the information entered by the student, an average net price of attendance for the current school year is generated.

The estimates generated by the template do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price; they are only estimates based on price of attendance and financial aid provided to students in a given year. The estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, the institution of higher education, or the State.
