2020-2021 Graduate Catalog

Retention in Master’s Degree Programs

Satisfactory Grade Point Average (GPA)

At any time after completing 9 credits of graduate study, students must have and maintain at least a 3.0 graduate GPA.

Probationary Status

Students will be placed on academic probation if their cumulative graduate GPA falls below 3.0 at any time after completion of 9 credits.

To remove probationary status, a student must have at least a 3.0 graduate cumulative GPA by the time the next 9 graduate credits are completed.

If probationary status is not removed, the student’s admission to graduate study will be canceled, and additional graduate study will not be possible until the student has reapplied for reinstatement.

Reinstatement Procedure

Students seeking readmission must present to the dean of the Graduate School a written request approved by the chairperson of the major department. The decision to reinstate will be made by the dean of the Graduate School.

Reinstatement Status

Students readmitted to graduate study will carry the same classification held when graduate admission was cancelled.
