A graduate non-degree student must maintain at a minimum the grade point average stipulated by the college for good academic standing.

Failure to Maintain Good Academic Standing

Students who fail to maintain good academic standing may be subject to dismissal from their program in accordance with procedures established by their program/college. Many programs have established time or course limitations within which a student must return to good standing before they may be dismissed from the program.
