Dismissal from University

Section 5.7 of the Graduate School Handbook

A student who is on probation and who does not raise the graduate CPHR to 3.0 or better at the end of the next semester or summer term of enrollment in the Graduate School may be dismissed from the university at the discretion of the Graduate School following consultation with the student’s Graduate Studies Committee chair. At the end of two consecutive semesters or terms on probation, the student is automatically dismissed from the university unless good standing is achieved. If there are extenuating circumstances, the Graduate Studies Committee may petition the Graduate School for an exception to this policy.

Doctoral Students. A doctoral student who has had two unsatisfactory attempts at the candidacy examination or the final oral examination or professional doctoral examination is automatically dismissed from the Graduate School. (See Section 7.7 for additional information.)
