Grading Policy

The average of grades earned in the approved program of study may be no less than a B (3.0). A student whose cumulative grade point average falls below this level may be prohibited from continuing in the program. Final disposition of all cases pertaining to academic standing are made by the Dean after consultation with the appropriate program director and/or the Academic Oversight Committee.

Students who have more than nine (9) credits of Incomplete (INC) grades will not be permitted to register for additional courses until all prior work is completed. A student who has received a grade of INC has one year in which to convert the INC to a letter grade.
