A graduate student whose cumulative graduate grade point average (GPA) falls below 3.0/4.0 is automatically placed on academic probation. Probationary status is removed only when a graduate student's cumulative GPA equals or exceeds the minimum 3.0/4.0 required to earn the Master's degree. A graduate student who remains on probation after completing 12 credit hours since being placed on probation will be dismissed from the program. Students on probation cannot hold a graduate assistantship or receive a tuition grant. Additionally, they may not enroll for more than 12 credit hours per quarter. A student whose cumulative GPA drops below 2.5/4.0 will automatically be dismissed from the graduate program. Any questions concerning rules, procedures, etc., relating to graduate work should be directed to the Associate Dean of the Faculty.
