Master's Degree Program Retention Policy - 1L2

The following applies to students enrolled in master's degree programs. Whenever a graduate student's grade point average falls below 3.0 (4.0 scale), the status of the student will be reviewed by the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research and the student's graduate adviser. If the student is permitted to continue, the conditions for continuance will be put in writing by the student's adviser and, upon concurrence of the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research, communicated to the student. In any case, if, after 15 semester hours of work in a degree program, a student has earned 6 or more hours of C or below in 400 or 500-level courses, not balanced by A in 400 or 500-level courses, the student will be dropped and ordinarily is not again admissible to a degree program.

Approved by Chancellor effective 2/21/92
This policy was issued on September 12, 2011, replacing the April 3, 2000 version.
