All students are required to maintain at least 2.0 GPA throughout the program. If a student fails to meet the satisfactory progress requirement, the student will be notified in writing and placed on probation until the satisfactory progress is achieved. If the student fails to meet the minimum GPA average at the completion of the program, the student will not qualify for a certificate of completion.
Students who fail a course, or whose cumulative fall or spring term grade point average falls below 2.0 will be placed on academic probation. In these circumstances, students will receive written correspondence from the Registrar outlining a plan of study designed to improve their academic performance. Such a plan of study may include a reduction in non-academic activities, special tutoring, remedial work in reading and writing, or such other provisions as may seem appropriate in each case.
Each student is required to follow their plan of study until they are removed from probation. The student is automatically removed from probation upon successfully completing an academic term in which none of the conditions listed in the first sentence of this statement occurs.
