Matriculated students will be dismissed from their graduate program if they do not maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0, or if they receive two grades of C+ or lower. In addition, grades below a B- are not acceptable for degree credit. Dismissal requires absence from the University for one semester, pending action on an appeal, if submitted.

Please note: Individual programs may have additional grounds on which students may be dismissed. Please refer to program handbooks and/or manuals for details.
