Termination of Studies

Students may be required to terminate their graduate studies and withdraw from the Graduate School-Newark if they fail to meet the minimum requirements of the program or the school. Each student must satisfy conditional requirements established at the time of his or her admission. Failure to make continuous progress toward the attainment of the degree may constitute a basis for termination.

When such problems occur, the program notifies the student in writing of the program's concern about his or her performance. Such a warning specifies the source of concern, the applicable program or graduate school rules at issue, and proposed actions to resolve the problem. Warnings specify when and on what basis the faculty is considering a recommendation for academic dismissal. A probationary period of one semester is typical, though shorter probationary periods may also be imposed.

Following the probationary period, a student who fails to meet the provisions of the warning should be considered by the program faculty for dismissal. The student may be asked or may request to speak on his or her behalf at a meeting of the program faculty for that purpose. A member of the university community may assist the student in preparing his or her presentation. If the program faculty decides to dismiss the student, this decision must be issued in writing and must explain the reasons for the decision and list all warnings communicated to the student.

In addition, nonadherence to the university's time-to-degree rules may constitute a basis for termination.
