Scholastic Standing

Scholastic Standing: Ed.D.

Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.25 in the doctoral coursework and dissertation research courses.

Scholastic Standing: Ed.M.

A student who receives more than three grades of C, F, or NC is performing unsatisfactorily. The student will be so informed and will be dismissed from the school unless the student's department formally recommends otherwise. No more than 9 credits offered in partial fulfillment of degree requirements shall bear the grade of C.

A department may dismiss, with the concurrence of the Committee on Admissions and Scholastic Standing, any academically deficient student, provided that the student is kept fully informed of the department`s dissatisfaction with his or her academic performance and that the departmental decision to dismiss is careful and deliberate.

Concerning Non-degree Status

Successful completion of courses taken as a non-degree student does not mean that a student will be admitted to a degree program. Non-degree students may take as many courses as they wish, but only 12 credits, and with the approval of the faculty, these credits may be transferred in the fulfillment of degree requirements in most programs. Application of those 12 credits is at the discretion of the academic department.

Students should discuss academic matters with the instructor involved with the issue. Should the problem remain unresolved, the student should approach the department chair. The department chair may decide the issue or refer the student to the associate dean. The associate dean may decide the issue or refer the matter to the Graduate School of Education Committee on Admissions and Scholastic Standing.
