Academic Standards

While students may meet a specific course requirement with a grade of C, they must maintain a B average. Students who do not maintain a B average or who earn more than one grade of C or lower may be asked to withdraw from the program. In addition, students who fail to complete the program’s requirements within the designated time frame may be asked to terminate the program.

The guidelines stated above are minimum requirements. Each program is free to set more specific terms by which progress is measured for purposes of continuation. Students are responsible for knowing and following the academic progression policies of the graduate program to which they have been admitted. See the individual programs of study in the catalog for more information. Students are also encouraged to check with their program director for complete information about academic performance and degree progress standards, as well as the procedures used to monitor these standards.
