Scholastic Standing

Candidates for the master's and doctoral degrees must earn grades of B or better in their coursework. No more than 9 credits with a grade of C or C+ may be used in meeting the requirements for a master's degree. No more than 12 credits with a grade of C or C+ may be used in meeting the requirements for the Ph.D. degree.

The Graduate School-Newark requires that all students maintain a minimum cumulative B or better average during each semester of study in order to remain enrolled. If a student's academic performance falls below the expected standard, the program or the school may review the record and make recommendations concerning that student's future registration in the Graduate School-Newark. Failure to maintain the minimum cumulative average may result in academic dismissal.
