Policies & Procedures
In addition to the probationary admission described earlier, a SLIS student may be placed on probation at any point in the program when failure to achieve a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 occurs. The student will be assigned a time frame in which the required 3.0 GPA must be restored. Failure to achieve this GPA within the required time or to maintain the 3.0 GPA for the remainder of the degree program will result in dismissal from the program. In no case is a master’s degree awarded for course work in which a cumulative GPA of less than 3.0 has been achieved. Students will not be permitted to continue graduate course work beyond the number of credit hours required for the degree solely in an attempt to raise the GPA to the required level. Students are expected to maintain a 3.0 GPA each semester.
