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 re-enroll and will be required to withdraw from the University. Since courses can be repeated and the second grade supersedes the first grade, a "C" can be effectively removed from one's transcript by repeating the course and earning an acceptable ("A" or "B") grade.
