Satisfactory Student Performance

  • According to University policy, a grade point average (GPA) of ‘B’ (3.0) or better is required for MA degrees. It is the policy of the Department of Media, Film & Journalism Studies that when a graduate student receives a third grade below a ‘B,’ his or her progress will be reviewed by the department’s Graduate Committee. The committee will normally terminate the student from the program if the GPA is below a 3.0. However, if evidence is presented suggesting that special circumstances account for the poor performance, the Graduate Committee shall have the option of allowing the student to continue in the program with the understanding that the overall GPA must be raised to a 3.0 at the time of the next grade report or the student will be terminated from the program. Graduate student performance will be reviewed on a quarterly basis by the Graduate Director and by each student’s academic advisor. Students who receive a second grade below a B will be notified of the department’s policies in this area.
