|Loss of Good Academic Standing||
Education Law requires that a student be in good academic standing to be eligible for State student financial assistance. Education Law also authorizes the Commissioner of Education to define “loss of good academic standing.”
(2) Good academic standing. Good academic standing, where required by law, means that: (i) the institution maintains a formal, published statement of its requirements for the maintenance of good academic standing; (ii) the student is matriculated at the institution; and (iii) the institution has determined that the student meets its standards for good academic standing.
(2) Following a determination that the recipient of an award has lost good academic standing, further payments of any award under article 13 or 14 of the Education Law shall be suspended until the student is restored to good academic standing by either: (i) pursuing the program of study in which he is enrolled and making satisfactory progress toward the completion of his program’s requirements; or (ii) establishing in some other way, to the satisfaction of the commissioner, evidence of his ability to successfully complete an approved program.
