Conditional Admission Policy:
Students failing to meet the 3.0 GPA academic requirement for admission into a graduate program, but who show potential for success can be granted conditional admission status. Conditional admission is granted at the discretion of the specific department, with the consent of the Office of Academic Affairs. Students admitted conditionally can take up to two (2) graduate courses in consultation with the department. If students earn a B or better for both classes they will be admitted fully into the program.
