  School of Criminal Justice 2021-2023 Academic Policies and Procedures Scholastic Standing  

Scholastic Standing

In computing the academic average of a student, all grades for all courses taken in the program are included. In particular, if a student has taken a course more than once, each grade received shall be included in the calculation of the cumulative grade-point average.

Normally, grades received in courses other than those of the school are not included in the cumulative grade-point average. However, grades received in courses other than those of the school that have been approved by the dean for inclusion in the degree program will be included. To calculate the cumulative grade-point average, the grade received in each course is multiplied by the credits, the sum of which is then divided by the total credits.

Master's students are reviewed by the M.A. Scholastic Standing Committee, and doctoral students are reviewed by the Ph.D. Committee.

Each student's academic record is reviewed annually. A deficient student may be warned, placed on probation, or dropped from the school. If permitted to remain in the school, the student may be requested to follow any program recommended by the committee.
