Reassignment of Admission Classification

Section 2.5 of the Graduate School Handbook

Provisional to Regular. The provisional restriction is removed by the Office of Graduate and Professional Admissions upon receipt of the materials pending at the time of admission, or upon meeting the requirements specified in the ICGDA, when applicable. Submission of official transcripts should follow the guidelines specified by the Office of Graduate and Professional Admissions.

Conditional to Regular. It is the dual responsibility of the Graduate Studies Committee and the Graduate School to monitor the progress of students in the conditional classification. Each semester, the Graduate School notifies the Graduate Studies Committee of students listed as conditional. On completion of the conditions of admission set by the Graduate Studies Committee, the chair asks the Graduate School to change the student’s classification to regular.

The status of a student admitted in the conditional classification should be changed to regular by the Graduate Studies Committee before the Application to Graduate is submitted. However, if the Graduate Studies Committee Chair signs the Application to Graduate for a conditional student, the Graduate School assumes that the student has fulfilled the conditions of admission and the student’s classification is changed to regular by the Graduate School. Failure to complete the conditional admission requirements within the time limit specified by the Graduate Studies Committee results in the student being denied further registration in that graduate program by the Graduate School.

Graduate Bridge Program (GBP) to Regular. It is the dual responsibility of the Graduate Studies Committee and the Graduate School to monitor the progress of students in the GBP. Students in the GBP who have achieved the 3.0 minimum GPA would be enrolled into their mentoring graduate program to which they have been accepted as a regular graduate student or apply to other graduate programs at the end of any term. Students in the GBP with a graduate GPA less than 3.0 may be conditionally accepted into the graduate program, but this is not guaranteed by the GBP commitment.

Graduate Non-Degree to Regular. Graduate non-degree students who wish to become regular students at this university must submit another application to the Graduate School through the Admissions Office.
