In both cases, gather all pertinent information and determine if the participant is eligible for an extension to provide an opportunity to improve his/her academic performance and raise the cumulative GPA to a satisfactory level.

Make a comment off the CCNEED (FMAC) screen in FAMIS if it is determined that an extension is warranted.  Include the reason child care was extended although the client's GPA for the previous semester did not meet the definition of satisfactory progress.

If the child care is extended, set a reminder in FAMIS on the FM7M (ALREMIND) screen to request the grade report at the end of the next semester.  It is not permissible to set these reminders in Outlook.

Review the participant's grade report when it is received.  Take action to close the case if the participant's GPA stays below 2.0 for two (2) consecutive semesters.  If the participant's GPA returns to 2.0 of higher for at least one (1) semester, the participant may regain eligibility.
