* Name of office was changed and amended

A student in good standing is one who meets the standards set by the graduate degree program and the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Graduate students must maintain a 2.70 cumulative grade-point-average to remain in good academic standing. A student whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.70 will be placed on Academic Probation and will have one semester to meet the 2.70 minimum or he or she will be academically withdrawn from the graduate program. Any term in which students are enrolled is considered the next semester.

In addition, no course in which a grade below B– (2.70) is earned may be credited toward any graduate degree. A student who receives below B– (2.70) in two courses is automatically withdrawn from the graduate program.

A student must have a 2.70 cumulative grade point average or above to graduate.

Students who are academically withdrawn from the College may not reapply.

Some programs may require additional Standards of Work.
