Full-time, Half-time, and Part-time Status: Graduate students enrolled in 6 or more credits per semester are classified as full-time students; those enrolled in 4-5 credits per semester are classified as 3/4 time students; those enrolled in 3 credits per semester are classified as half-time students, and those enrolled in 1-2 credits per semester are classified as 1/4 time students.
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.
