These programs include:

This policy also includes all financial aid programs from the State of Kansas and Kansas Wesleyan University programs.

In order to be eligible and to remain eligible for the above listed programs, a student's academic performance must be in compliance with these standards. For the specifics of these standards, refer to the current university Academic Catalog. Look at page 29 in the 2019–20 Academic Catalog and go to the section titled “Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards."
