Good Standing

Section 5.1 of the Graduate School Handbook

To be in good academic standing in the Graduate School, a student must maintain a graduate cumulative grade-point average (cGPA) of 3.0 or better in all graduate credit courses at The Ohio State University and must maintain reasonable progress toward Graduate School or graduate program requirements. 

A doctoral student who has had two unsatisfactory attempts at the candidacy examination or the final oral examination or professional doctoral examination is not in good standing and will not be afforded another opportunity to complete the examination and will be dismissed from the Graduate School and university. 

Additionally, students who violate university policy (including, but not limited to, the Code of Student Conduct, Research Misconduct Policy and Appendix C) while enrolled in a graduate program are not in good standing in the Graduate School.
