A student cannot earn a graduate degree or certificate unless he or she has achieved a cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 or higher on all course work taken for graduate credit, whether or not the courses are offered in satisfaction of the specific requirements for a specific graduate program. A student whose cumulative GPA is below 3.0 for two consecutive semesters (see Academic Probation) will be disqualified. Programs may allow students to take additional course work while in non-degree status. In order to graduate, the student must apply for readmission to the Graduate College through their graduate department. Readmission is not guaranteed.
Non-degree seeking students are subject to a requirement of satisfactory academic progress: Non-degree seeking students must demonstrate satisfactory academic progress each semester by maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA as calculated over the preceding 2 semesters of enrollment as a non-degree seeking student. Students who do not meet this requirement will no longer be eligible for enrollment.
