A grade of B or better is
expected in all coursework. However, at the department's discretion, up to as
many as 4 credits of C grades may be considered for meeting the master of fine arts (M.F.A.) in dance
degree requirements. Grades are reviewed by the graduate faculty each semester.
Students may be required to withdraw from the Mason Gross School of the Arts if
they do not maintain satisfactory academic or professional standards in any
phase of the program. Academic dismissal may be appealed in writing to the
Scholastic Standing Committee of Mason Gross School of the Arts.
