Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Counseling

Do you have questions or concerns about being on academic warning, suspension or probation? Please stop by the Deeann Griebel Student Success Center (IL 224) if you’re on-campus, or call 507-537-7273 for more information about SMSU’s Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy. We will work with you individually to discuss strategies and resources that can help you get back on track to achieving academic success.

During an SAP Counseling appointment, we will review your SMSU transcripts and your SAP criteria (cumulative completion rate and cumulative GPA) and align that information with your academic standing (academic warning, suspension or probation) as well as your student classification (number of attempted credits). We’ll discuss what has been going well for you as well as areas that you want to improve on, and make a plan to help you achieve your academic goals.

All students who are on academic warning or academic probation during the fall and/or spring semesters will have access to a D2L course to help support them through the SAP process as well.

Your success is our mission, and we want to ensure that you have the necessary knowledge about SAP as well as the resources available to you as a Mustang to best position you for success.

To schedule an SAP Counseling appointment, please contact Kaitlyn Giles, Assistant Director of Student Success, by phone at 507-537-7273 or email at
