IUP master’s students must maintain a minimum of
3.0 (“B”) cumulative graduate quality point average to be in good standing
academically. This policy remains the same for students pursuing a graduate degree at the doctoral level, except the required minimum grade point average is between 3.0 and 3.5, depending upon the program.
Students who fall below good standing are placed
on probation for their next active semester or summer term, during which the
cumulative average must be raised to 3.0. Students who fail to raise their
cumulative averages to at least 3.0 during their probation period will be
dropped from their degree program as well as from the School of Graduate
Studies and Research and will not be permitted to register for further courses.
A student must be in good standing to be admitted to degree candidacy and to
Graduate students earning final grades of "F" and a 0.00 CGPA at the end of their first semester of enrollment will be dismissed from the University, except for graduate students enrolled in only one course (up to 4 credits), who may be placed on probation at the discretion of the SGSR Academic Standards officer.
