Grade Point Average
The Graduate School places any student whose GPA falls below 3.00 on academic probation. Any student who is on academic probation and has been on academic probation for at least one academic term and who has accumulated six or more hours of C or its equivalent unbalanced by A in 400- or 500-level courses will be dropped from the Graduate School. An overall GPA of at least 3.00 in all graduate work included in the doctoral degree program is required before that degree can be awarded. All students must maintain at least a 3.00 GPA. No course in which the grade is below C counts toward the Ph.D. degree; however, the grade does count in the student's GPA.
