Academic Standards
To maintain good standing in progress toward a degree, a graduate student must achieve a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 (B). No credit is awarded for any course in which a grade below C is earned. No more than two grades of C or C+, in any combination, may be applied toward a graduate degree. For professional degree students, the minimum grade point average for good standing is 2.0. Individual programs may set a higher G.P.A. standard.
An Incomplete (IC) grade may be given to a student passing a course, but due to illness or other compelling reason satisfactory to the instructor, a relatively small amount of work remains. The Absent from Exam (ABX) grade may be given if a student misses only the final exam due to illness or other compelling reason satisfactory to the instructor. Work must be completed within one academic year according to the specific policies of the college/school or a grade of F will be assigned. Refer to each college/school section for policy regarding warning, probation, and suspension or dismissal.
