Provisional Admission (Master’s degree students only)

Provisional Admission to a graduate degree is open to an applicant whose GPA is below 3.00 required by the Graduate School, but generally not lower than 2.75, who has other experience or qualifications that demonstrate potential to undertake graduate study and whose admission is requested by the admitting academic unit. After attempting 12 graduate credits and earning at least a 3.00 GPA, a student is changed to Regular status by the Graduate School. If a 3.00 GPA is not earned in the first 12 credit hours attempted, the Graduate School will consult with the academic unit to determine whether the student should be allowed to continue for one additional semester on probationary status.
