In order to receive Federal Student Aid or qualify under certain grants, students may be required to meet satisfactory progress standards toward program completion and graduation. Program completion standards include skills competencies, academic grades, attendance, and financial obligations. Satisfactory Progress consists of a number of elements that will be reviewed during each grading period. 

The student will:  
- Build a record of attendance and dependability to prepare the student for employment 
- Demonstrate competencies of individual program skills and hands-on training 
- Demonstrate teamwork 
- Demonstrate commitment to the program and respect for others, school, program tools, and materials
Qualitative Standards for Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP):
Grade Point Average: A cumulative grade point average is calculated based on the following scale: 
- Letter Grade A (90-100%) = 4.00 GPA 
- Letter Grade B (80-89%) = 3.00 GPA 
- Letter Grade C (70-79%) = 2.00 GPA 
- Letter Grade F (< 69%) = 0.00 GPA
Students must finish their program with at least a 2.00 GPA (70%) in order to meet SAP requirements.

The U.S. Dept. of Education requires that we provide a Net Price Calculator for our full-time programs. This includes the total cost of attendance (tuition, fees, room and board, books and supplies, transportation and miscellaneous expenses), along with the average student grant award. The figures below are based on statistics which are the most recent available; this information is updated annually.

Please click the following link to use the Net Price Calculator:  Penta Net Price Calculator, net price calculations are used for full-time programs only at this time. All of Penta programs for the 2023-2024 academic year are considered part-time (200 clock hours or less). 

The Jeanne Clery Act requires all colleges and universities who receive federal funding to share information about crime on campus and their efforts to improve campus safety as well as inform the public of crime in or around campus.
