Conditional admission is intended for those students whose undergraduate record does not reflect their current capacity to successfully complete graduate work. In those circumstances conditional admission status, upon the recommendation of the graduate program coordinator, admissions committee, and graduate dean, may be granted. It should be noted that some academic units may have higher or other admission requirements. Conditional admission has a maximum time limit of one academic year. Applicants admitted on a conditional basis must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 while enrolled. A final admission decision shall be reserved by the academic unit until an applicant’s performance has been evaluated after one academic year of enrollment. For conditional admission status, an applicant must, as a minimum:
- Hold a baccalaureate degree granted by a regionally accredited institution (for international students, a degree granted by a recognized institution).
- Have earned a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.3 in all undergraduate coursework; or have earned a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 in the last 60 credit hours of undergraduate coursework; or have earned a minimum grade point average of 2.5 in the applicant’s major field of study.
- Submit programmatically acceptable scores in the General Test of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or, where applicable, other appropriate standardized measures.
- Satisfy and/or meet any and all additional admission requirements of the program where admission is being sought.
