Any student whose institutional grade point average falls below 3.0 will received an academic warning. If the grade point average falls to or below the equivalent of 6 hours of uncompensated C's, the student will be academically dismissed from the degree program. An uncompensated C is one letter grade below a B where there is not an A to bring the grade point average up to a 3.0. For example, one C without an A equals one uncompensated C; one D without an A would equal two uncompensated C's. Academic credit towards a graduate degree will not be granted for any grade below a C. However, these grades will be used in determining the institutional grade point average for courses that have not been repeated. For the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, please refer to the degree program section of the catalog for grade requirements.
A student who has been academically dismissed and wants to be considered for readmission to a program must petition the degree graduate coordinator and be approved by the Dean of the College in which the program resides. In order to be considered for admission into a different degree program, the student must petition the degree graduate coordinator and be approved by the Dean of the College in which the program resides.
