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.
