ACADEMIC STANDARDS 

Graduate students must maintain an academic grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 (B) during their enrollment in the program. In order to graduate, students must have at least a 3.0 (B) GPA.

ACADEMIC STANDING
Graduate students will be placed on academic probation if their cumulative GPA drops below 3.0 (B). Those who do not achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.0 (B) within two semesters of being placed on academic probation will be dismissed from the program. A student who receives one ‘C+’ will be placed on academic probation but may progress with coursework. A subsequent grade of a ‘C+’ or lower will dismiss them from the program regardless of GPA. A course in which students receive a grade of ‘C’ must be successfully repeated before they can continue in higher level coursework. A student who receives an ‘F’ will be dismissed from the program. Students dismissed from the MSN program may appeal the action to the School of Nursing Admissions Committee.​
