Graduate Student Academic Probation

Questions?

Questions about the graduate program in materials science and engineering may be sent to Dr. Raymond Phaneuf.

Graduate students are placed on academic probation when their cumulative GPA falls below a 3.0 upon or after completion of 9 credits of graduate courses.

If a student's GPA remains below 3.0 for a second consecutive semester, the student will be given a final opportunity to correct their academic deficiency.

After a third semester with a GPA below 3.0, the student will not be permitted to reenroll and will be required to withdraw from the University. Since courses can be repeated and the second grade supersedes the first grad, a C can be effectively removed from one's transcript by repeating the course and earning an acceptable (A or B) grade.
