Students are expected to earn at least a B- (2.70 on a 4.0 scale) in each course. Students receiving a grade lower than B- (2.70) in any course must repeat that course. Receipt of a grade lower than B- (2.70) in two courses will result in the student being placed on probation and may result in dismissal from the program. Dismissed students with special circumstances may be permitted to apply for readmission after one year.
Once fully admitted to the MSW program, students must maintain "continuous" enrollment. Continuous enrollment is defined as registering for at least one credit of course work each semester until graduation requirements are fulfilled. Exceptions to this policy may be made for students experiencing highly unusual circumstances (examples: called to active military duty, hospitalization, death of an immediate family member). Requests for an exception must be submitted in writing and be approved by the program director.
