- The maximum time a student may hold an assistantship is four regular semesters, with the possibility of special arrangements for summer sessions. (Graduate School policy).
- Independent studies “may not,” except in “unusual” cases, “duplicate an existing course.” (Graduate School policy). .

If not enrolled in a regular course during the semester when you enroll in GR698 Masters Final Comprehensive Exam or GR699 Masters Oral Examination, you will be charged a min9mum enrollment fee equivalent to the incidental fee for on graduate credit hour.
- A grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a scale of 4.0 in all graduate work taken is required for a degree.

(Graduate School policy). .
- A student who receives a failing grade (‘F’) in a graduate course may not continue in a graduate program until obtaining the written approval from the appropriate college/department/program official(s) and the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies. Failure to follow this procedure will result in suspension from the graduate school. To be removed from academic probationary status, the student must successfully retake the failed course and have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. (Graduate School policy). .
