An overall GPA of 3.0 must be maintained in courses used to meet the program requirements. At most two course grades of C or C+ are allowed to be used, and the rest of the course grades must be B- or better.
A full-time master’s student who fails, in a given semester, to receive a grade of B- or better in at least two courses in their master’s program (not counting the department seminar) will be placed on Academic Probation. For a full-time master’s student on Academic Probation, failure to pass at least two courses with a B- or better in their master’s program (not counting the department seminar) is grounds for dismissal. Also, in any given semester, whether or not a student is on Academic Probation, they may be dismissed if they fail to receive any grades of B- or better in their master’s program (not counting the department seminar).
