Grade Point Average for Retention and Dismissal

Students must have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 (B) to be retained in a graduate program. Students whose GPA falls below 3.0 are on probationary status. While they are on probationary status, their registration forms must be signed by the coordinator of their program. Students may raise their GPA only through enrollment in graduate courses approved by their program coordinator.

Students on academic probation will not be dismissed but will be automatically continued on probation as long as they achieve a grade point average of 3.5 or better each year until they have reached the required minimum grade point average.

Students who fail to achieve the minimum 3.5 grade point average, for any year, while on probation, will be dismissed.
