Academic Suspension and Dismissal (M.O.L.)

A student whose grade point average for any given semester falls below 2.0 will be suspended for the following semester. A student who has been suspended for academic or other reasons may make a written appeal to the Graduate Committee.

If the Graduate Committee rules favorably on the appeal, the student will be allowed to remain on academic probation for an additional semester.

If the Graduate Committee denies the appeal, the committee can decide one of two things:

  1. The Graduate Committee can dismiss the student. Students who are dismissed are not eligible to request readmission to the program.
  2. The Graduate Committee can place the student on suspension with the possibility of reapplying to the program. Students should consult with the Graduate Program Director regarding the readmission application process.
