Grade Requirements: Probation and Continuation Criteria
Cumulative Grade Point Average
In order to be awarded a master's degree, a graduate student must finish his/her program with a cumulative Grade Point Average of 3.0 (B) or better.
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.
Graduate students whose GPA falls below 2.7 will not be eligible for probation and will not be permitted to continue in the M.S.W. program. These students 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 pre-requisite. They may enroll in the class for which they received the failing grade in the semester in which it is offered if their GPA meets the criteria for probation and continuation.
