Policy on Satisfactory Academic Standing
Good academic and administrative standing are required for continued enrollment in the MA program. Good academic standing is constituted by:
- Maintaining consistent contact with the academic advisor
- Maintaining a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0
- Holding no more than one mark of Incomplete at any given time
Good administrative standing entails being in compliance with all applicable administrative policies and procedures of the university.
Failure to maintain good academic or administrative standing may result in academic or administrative warning, probation, suspension, or dismissal. Students who are not in good standing will be advised regarding corrective steps to take, the deadlines for doing so, and the consequences of failing to remedy the matter. A student who fails to take corrective steps within the specified time limit will be terminated from candidacy for his/her degree. In cases of evident and extreme failure to achieve progress, a student may be dismissed from the degree program without a probationary period. All students are expected to familiarize themselves with the EALAC policies and procedures. For more information regarding Good Standing please see the GSAS Policy Handbook. Students can also reach out to the MA Program Director, the DGS, and/or the Associate Director of Academic Programs.
