Grade Requirements: Probation and Continuation Criteria

Academic Probation

Graduate students whose GPA falls between 2.7 and 3.0 will be placed on academic probation. Students on academic probation must raise their GPA to 3.0 within the next semester in order to continue in the M.S.W. program. Graduate students whose GPA remains below 3.0 at the end of the probationary semester will be allowed to continue in the M.S.W. program only upon successful appeal to the Graduate Studies Committee.

Continuation

M.S.W. students whose GPA falls below 2.7 will not be eligible for probation and may only continue in the M.S.W. program upon successful appeal to the Graduate Studies Committee.

Students who receive less than a C in Fieldwork and Seminar (SWK 671, 672, 773, 774) may only continue in the M.S.W. program upon successful appeal to the Graduate Studies Committee. 

Students who receive a failing grade in a course may not continue in any course for which the failed course is a prerequisite. They may enroll in the course for which they received the failing grade in the next semester in which it is offered only if their GPA meets the criteria for probation and continuation.
