Standards for Continued Study


Graduate degree programs expect all students to strive toward-and attain-academic excellence. Grades and progress will be evaluated at the end of every fall and spring semester/block once final grades are posted for the term. A graduate student must maintain a 3.0 grade point average to maintain satisfactory academic progress. Students who fall below a cumulative GPA of 3.0 will be placed on academic probation for one semester. If the student fails to improve their GPA to a 3.0 or higher after one semester, the student will be academically suspended and removed from the program.

A student dismissed for academic reasons may apply for readmission on a provisional basis after one calendar year has elapsed. Requests for reinstatement are rigorously reviewed and approval is not guaranteed.
