Good Academic Standing
In order to remain in good academic standing, a student must have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 and no more than two grades of “C.”
- Students who fail to maintain the above cumulative grade-point averages will be placed on academic probation for one semester.
- Even with a grade point average of 3.0 or better, having more than two grades of “C” or lower results in academic probation at the graduate level.
- Probation may not be appealed.
Dismissal from the University
- A student who is on academic probation, and whose current grade- point average falls or remains below 3.0, or who fails to complete coursework required to be removed from probation, is dismissed from the graduate program and the University.
- Some programs allow a dismissed student to reapply for admission to the graduate program from which they have been dismissed after a period of absence from the University for at least one year. A dismissed student cannot apply to another graduate program in the university for a period of at least one year.
- A student who has been suspended twice, is on academic probation, and whose current grade-point average falls below 3.0 is dismissed from the University and must remain out of the University for at least one year.
