Academic Probation

  • Students in the School of Education must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 as required by the University for all graduate programs.  Students falling below an overall GPA of 3.0 will be placed on academic probation. 
  • Students receiving a grade of 'F' for any graduate course shall be placed on academic probation.
  • See University policy on Academic Probation for more details.

Criteria for Dismissal

  • Students who fail to meet the cumulative GPA of 3.0 in a graduate program for two semesters or nine additional hours will be dismissed from the program.
  • Students receiving a second of grade of 'F' for any graduate course shall be dismissed from the program and the School of Education.

Non-Academic Dismissal

The Academic Department reserves the right to recommend dismissal for reasons of poor scholarship, academic fraud or misconduct. Some programs have identified professional behaviors that need to be met or non-academic dismissal will occur. Such recommendations are made to the department Chairperson. When dismissed, students are ineligible to continue taking graduate courses.
