Motion Text: 

A graduate student will be placed on graduate academic probation if the student's institutional graduate grade point average falls below a 3.00 at any point during his or her graduate studies.

Each department that has a graduate program will develop a policy for progression in its graduate program, which it will publish in the Graduate Catalog. Students who fail to meet the requirements for progression in the graduate program will be placed on graduate academic dismissal, and will not be allowed to continue in the graduate program. All department decisions to place a student on graduate academic dismissal must be filed with the Registrar before the end of the add/drop period of the following semester of enrollment. In order to be considered for readmission to the program, the student must successfully petition the graduate program coordinator and the Dean of the College in which his or her program resides.
