Student Promotion

Student Promotion, or academic progression, is defined in the Graduate School of Nursing (GSN) as a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and progression through the program as defined in particular programs of study.  If a student is required to repeat a specific course, the initial grade will be replaced by the grade earned the second time the course is taken. Transfer credits, incompletes, and withdrawals do not factor into the GPA but are included when evaluating progress towards degree completion. Satisfactory Academic Progress will be monitored by the Program Coordinator or Program Director minimally twice a year.
