The Graduate School expects students to make satisfactory progress toward their degrees by enforcing minimum standards. Students not making satisfactory progress are subject to academic probation.
The Graduate School requires students maintain good academic standing with the Graduate School, their program, and their advisor. The Graduate School regularly reviews the records of students who earn grades with associated grade points of less than 3.00, e.g., BC, C, D, F, or I in courses numbered 300 or above, or grades of U in research and thesis courses. This review may result in academic probation with a hold on future enrollment, and may lead to dismissal from graduate studies.
The Graduate School requires students maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or greater for all graduate courses (excluding research). The Graduate School considers Incomplete (I) grades to be unsatisfactory if the grades are not resolved during the subsequent semester of enrollment; an instructor may impose an earlier deadline. The Graduate School reserves the right to place a student on probation for Incomplete (I) grades not cleared within one semester. All incomplete grades must be resolved before a degree is granted.
A graduate student must earn a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or greater to graduate.
If a student is admitted on probation and satisfies the conditions outlined at the time of admission, probationary status will be removed.
