A student whose grade point average for any given semester falls below 2.0 will be suspended for the following semester. Those students who do not meet the requirements to regain good standing at the conclusion of a semester on academic probation will also be subject to suspension. 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. However, two or more semesters of academic probation may result in dismissal from the program. Students who are dismissed are not eligible to request readmission to the program. Students should consult with the Graduate Program Coordinator regarding this appeal process.
