Academic Dismissal Policy

A student placed on academic probation for a cumulative GPA of less than 3.000 will have one academic term to raise the cumulative GPA greater than or equal to 3.000. Students whose cumulative GPA is below 3.000 for two consecutive terms in which they took courses for credit (excluding  (ENCP 6000) or  (ENCP 6100), if taken) will automatically be dismissed from their degree program at the end of the second term. Students in this situation may submit an Academic Dismissal Appeal Form to the graduate school, to be reviewed by the student’s academic department, to request a final one-term extension. Students whose cumulative GPA is below 3.000 for three consecutive terms will automatically be dismissed from their degree program.

A student will also be dismissed from their degree program if they do not meet the requirements of their program.

A student who is dismissed from their program may submit an appeal through the college’s graduate appeals process.

Students dismissed from their program will receive a written notification from the Graduate School of Engineering.
