A graduate student whose graduate cumulative grade-point average, or semester average, falls below 3.0 will be placed on probation.
Probationary status is removed at the end of a subsequent semester in which a cumulative and semester grade-point average of 3.0 is attained.
A student on probation who fails to earn a minimum, graduate, semester grade-point average of 3.0 will be suspended for one semester, after which the student may re-enroll.
A second suspension will be for an indefinite period of time. A student who has served a time of suspension of at least one semester may appeal to the Graduate Council for readmission.
A third suspension will result in permanent dismissal from graduate studies.
For the purpose of determining graduate student eligibility to return to the University, a semester and summer session are considered to be the same.
Suspensions may not be appealed.
