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
A graduate student will be placed on Academic Probation at the conclusion of any semester in which the student’s cumulative GPA is less than a 3.0(B). The student has the following one semester (or two courses) to raise the cumulative GPA to a 3.0. A graduate student will be dismissed from the program if the student does not raise the cumulative GPA to a 3.0 within one semester (or two courses) of being placed on Academic Probation. A graduate student placed on Academic Probation more than one time during the program will be dismissed from the program. A graduate student earning one grade of “F” in any graduate course will be dismissed from the program. A student who receives one grade of “C+” or lower will be placed on Academic Probation but may progress with coursework. A subsequent grade of “C+” or lower will result in dismissal from the program regardless of GPA. A course in which a student receives a grade of “C” must be successfully repeated before the student can continue in higher level coursework. Students dismissed from the MSN/DNP program may appeal the action to the School of Nursing Admissions Committee.
