Student Standing


Master’s Students

To be in good standing, Master’s students must receive grades of A, A/B, or B in all courses and make reasonable progress toward the degree. Students receiving B/C’s, C’s, or F’s must meet with their advisor. A grade of B/C, C, or F in a course may be grounds for probation; two B/C’s, C’s, or one F may be grounds for withdrawal or dismissal from the program. Students must also make satisfactory progress toward the degree, as described on the Graduate Student Research Performance Evaluation Review. 

Doctoral Students

Doctoral students are expected to receive more A’s or A/B’s than B’s to be in good academic standing. Doctoral students’ grades are reviewed yearly, and if they have received more B’s than A’s or A/B’s, they must meet with their advisor to discuss their status in the program. Students who receive B/C’s, C’s, or F’s must also meet with their advisor to discuss their status in the program. A grade of B/C, C or F in a course may be grounds for probation; two C’s or one F may be grounds for withdrawal or dismissal from the program (see “Academic Probation” below). Students must also make satisfactory progress toward the degree, as described on the Graduate Student Research Performance Evaluation Review.
