Graduate Standards of Scholarship

  • Candidates for graduate degrees must fulfill satisfactorily the schedule of studies outlined in the program selected. A minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 (4.00 system) is required.

  • No grade of D or F may count toward a degree.

  • If a student receives an unsatisfactory grade the course may be repeated once. The highest grade will be used in computing the grade-point average.

  • Credit by examination is not accepted toward a graduate degree but may be used to remove deficiencies.

  • Candidates for graduate degrees must successfully pass comprehensive examinations or an acceptable alternative for a particular program as approved by the Graduate Council.
