Students who do not bring up their GPA to 3.0 within the next twelve credit hours will be dismissed from the program and their registration for the next semester will automatically be terminated. Re-admittance to the program is possible only when there is a sufficient reason to believe that a student will be able to fulfill the above mentioned standards. In such special circumstances, a student may be re-admitted only after one full year, upon the recommendation of the faculty advisor and a majority vote of the faculty. The student must then contact the retention coordinator with proof of the faculty's favorable decision to return to active status as a student.
