Good Academic Standing
A student’s academic standing is determined by the cumulative quality point average (G.P.A.). Graduate students are expected to maintain a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 or above. A student who has less than a 3.0 cumulative G.P.A. at any time is placed on academic probation for one semester. At the end of the probation semester, the student’s file is reviewed by the program's student progress committee. If the student’s cumulative G.P.A. is a minimum of 3.0, the student is automatically removed from probation. If a student does not achieve the 3.0 G.P.A., the program student progress committee will either dismiss the student from the program immediately or continue the student on probation for one more semester. If a minimum of 3.0 is not then achieved, dismissal is automatic.
A student who receives less than a C or fails a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory course must repeat the course unless he or she has been dismissed. A course may be repeated one time only. A student may be on probation no more than two semesters during the entire graduate program.
A student who maintains a minimum of a 3.0 average but receives a third grade of C or lower will be reviewed by the program graduate committee for a recommendation regarding continuation in the program. An appeal to any of the above may be made by following the grievance procedures found in the D’Youville College calendar and resource guide.
