Withdrawal / Dismissal
Graduate students voluntarily withdrawing from the university must send a letter to the Graduate Dean, via their Graduate Program Director, indicating the reasons for the request. The student's Graduate Program Director must endorse the request and attest to the student's current academic standing. The student, or Graduate Program Director on their behalf, must still complete Add/Drop forms for all courses in which the student is enrolled.
Failure to Enroll
Graduate students who have not enrolled will automatically be withdrawn from the university for failure to maintain continuous enrollment (see Penalty for Late Registration).
Graduate students may be administratively withdrawn from the university, after due notice, for failure to satisfy overdue financial obligations or to comply with administrative requirements of the university. See the "Policies and Regulations" section of the current Graduate School Bulletin for further information.
A graduate student who in any two semesters, consecutive or otherwise, has semester averages of below 2.8 is subject to academic dismissal upon recommendation of the Graduate Program Director and approval by the Dean of the Graduate School.
Unsatisfactory or Unreasonable Progress
Graduate students who are not making satisfactory or reasonable progress toward the completion of their degree program are subject to termination. Upon the recommendation of the Graduate Program Director and the approval of the Dean of the Graduate School, students will be notified of any formal termination by the Graduate School.
