2017-2018 Graduate Catalog


Dismissal, Suspension or Expulsion

Students may be dismissed from individual courses with a grade of "F" for lack of academic progress or for conduct deemed to be contrary to the professional or ethical standards of a field upon the recommendation of the responsible faculty member and the approval of the appropriate academic dean.

At such times as the student fails to meet acceptable standards of academic performance or has engaged in professional misconduct, at the discretion of the dean of the school/college in which the student is enrolled, the student may be

  1. Dismissed or suspended from a program of study, and/or
  2. Expelled from the University.

If a student is dismissed, suspended or expelled from the University, an appropriate grade or designation will be recorded for each course in progress as determined by the dean with oversight for the course in consultation with the dean of the school/college in which the student is enrolled.
