Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) refers to the satisfactory of program requirements as established by the Graduate School. For all students in all programs, the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy requires the maintenance of a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher, timely completion of course work, as well as timely progress towards the degree.

A student who is not making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), after the completion of two terms, will be placed on Academic Probation. A student who is not making SAP may be required to appear before the Committee for Academic Review (CAR).

Once a student has an Academic Probation status, the Committee for Academic Review and/or Program Academic Committee must approve a remediation plan for the student that is no more than one year in length. Failure to meet the terms of the remediation plan and/or return to satisfactory academic progress will result in a student’s dismissal.
