Graduate School
 Policy
7.8. Probation
Failure to make adequate progress jeopardizes a student's potential to complete the degree and their financial aid. To provide students notice of inadequate progress at the end of each semester, graduate students with a cumulative GPA below 3.0 in a minimum of nine credit hours are placed on probation. A program may also place a student on probation if it regards the student's progress as unsatisfactory. Graduate School shall inform students of their probation by letter, with copies sent to the graduate director of the program, the Graduate Admissions Office and Financial Aid.

If at the end of the probationary semester the cumulative GPA is at least 3.0, the probationary status is removed. A probationary student who fails to raise the cumulative GPA to 3.0 may, on the recommendation of the program, be allowed a second probationary semester. A student is subject to dismissal upon failure to raise the cumulative GPA to 3.0 by the end of the second probationary semester, or at any time a semester or cumulative GPA falls below 3.0.
7.9. Dismissal
A student who is on probation for more than two semesters during his/her program of study will be dismissed, unless the dean of the Graduate School approves an exceptional request for continuation from the advisor and/or graduate director. Upon recommendation of the unit, the Graduate School may dismiss any graduate student who does not make adequate progress. The Graduate School is responsible for sending dismissal letters to students, with copies sent to the graduate advisor, the graduate director of the program, the Graduate Admissions Office, and the Financial Aid Office.

Graduate School shall inform students of their probation by letter, with copies sent to the graduate director of the program, the Graduate Admissions Office and Financial Aid.

If at the end of the probationary semester the cumulative GPA in doctoral-level courses required for Ph.D. in Business Administration is at least 3.0, the probationary status is removed. A probationary student who fails to raise the cumulative GPA to 3.0 in doctoral-level courses required for Ph.D. in Business Administration may, on the recommendation of either the Graduate Business Programs Director or the Director of the Ph.D. program in Business Administration in the student's area of emphasis, be allowed a second probationary semester.
