Program Completion

All coursework must be successfully completed in no longer than five (5) years after the completion of the first graduate-level course taken after entrance into the program.

Academic Standards

MSOL candidates must maintain an academic GPA of at least 3.0 (“B”) during their enrollment in the program. To graduate, a student must have at least a 3.0 GPA. No course in which a grade below a “C” (2.0) is earned will be accepted as fulfilling a requirement for the graduate degree. For the purposes of determining academic standing, purely elective courses or courses taken on a transient basis will not be included in the GPA computation.

An MSOL candidate will be placed on probation at the conclusion of any semester in which the student’s grade point average is less than 3.0. The student has one semester (at least two courses) to raise the average to 3.0. A graduate student is dismissed from the program if the student does not raise the grade point to 3.0 within one semester (or two courses) of being placed on academic probation. A student earning one grade of “F” in any graduate course will be dismissed from the program.  Courses in the MSOL Program may not be repeated for credit.

Students dismissed from the MSOL Program have 30 days in which to appeal the action to the MSOL Advisory Committee. The Committee will review the appeal and make a recommendation to the Dean who will rule on the appeal.

Grade Appeal Process

The  MSOL program follows the Jacksonville University established procedures and appeals process for grade and academic dishonesty appeals.
