Retention

A minimum graduate grade point average of 3.0 (B) is required in all master's degree programs. No grade lower than a "B" on applied music courses will be accepted toward requirements of the Master of Music degree. A maximum of six semester hours of "C" may be applied toward requirements of the Master of Business Administration and the Master of Education degrees.

After being admitted to a graduate program, a student will be placed on academic probation if the graduate grade point average falls below 3.0 (B) after the completion of twelve (12) semester hours, including transfer credit. During the first probation semester, a student must have a cumulative GPA and/or semester GPA of 3.0. If neither the cumulative nor semester GPA is a 3.0, the student will be allowed to register only as a part-time student (i.e., a maximum of five hours and three hours during the regular and summer term, respectively) until a cumulative GPA of 3.0 is achieved. If a student during a second semester of probation does not earn a 3.0 semester average, s/he will be dismissed from their graduate program. An academic reprieve is not applicable to graduate programs.
