Disqualification - Academic - Graduate
A graduate student who is on academic probation is disqualified if he or she fails to earn a 3.0 or better grade point average each term until the required 3.0 grade point average is again established. This requires enrollment in at least one letter-graded course in each term that the student is on probation. Credential candidates are subject to the GPA requirements dictated by the State Department of Education. Candidates will be notified of those requirements by the department in the College of Education in which they are seeking their credential preparation. At this time, the minimum GPA requirement matches that of the graduate division as a whole, that is, the 3.0 level. Credential candidates who fail to meet this standard are academically disqualified and, depending on the department, may or may not be eligible for reinstatement. Similarly, if at the time of completion of all credential course requirements, a student's candidacy GPA or cumulative GPA are below the 3.0 threshold, the student is academically disqualified and may not be afforded the option of repeating credential courses to raise the GPA.
