Undergraduate program students experiencing academic difficulties may be required to decelerate their progress until an acceptable level of general academic performance is achieved. Permission to decelerate in the program must be obtained from the chair of the Division of Wellness and Rehabilitation.

Students at the undergraduate level can be placed on program probation a maximum of two consecutive terms or a total of three nonconsecutive terms. Students who exceed these limits are dismissed.

Admission requirements for applicants entering as freshmen are as follows:

  1. A high school average of at least 80 percent

The admission requirement for transfer students is a minimum G.P.A. of 2.5. Transfer students are also strongly advised to include letters of recommendation and a letter of intent with their application. Students with a G.P.A. of lower than 2.5 may be considered for conditional acceptance on an individual basis. Conditionally accepted students can matriculate after completing four undergraduate or graduate courses, as appropriate, with a grade of B or better.
