Master's Students

Master's students must achieve a minimum of 68% in all courses taken. However, up to 6 credits of coursework with grades of 60-67% may be counted towards the master's program.

If a student has to repeat a failed required course, s/he must obtain a minimum mark of 74%. Higher minimum marks may be required by the graduate program or the College of Graduate Studies.

If the student does not improve the grade by repeating the course or taking an alternate course and obtaining a satisfactory grade, s/he may be required to withdraw from the graduate program.

If a student obtains grades of 60-67% in an excessive number of courses (more than 6 credits) s/he may be required to withdraw. The student will be informed of unsatisfactory academic progress in writing before any action regarding withdrawal is taken.

For Master's students registered in the College of Graduate Studies, a standing of Fail (F) will be assigned to courses with grades that fall below 60%.
