Attendance Policy: All Graduate Education Program
Attendance is mandatory at all class sessions. If a student is to be absent for any reason he/she must discuss the expected absence with the course instructor before it occurs.
Academic Standards and Evaluation in Graduate Education Programs
Upon completion of each course, letter grades are assigned to each student. At the graduate level, a "C" grade indicates less-than complete mastery of the content and methods of the course. Only two grades of "C" are accepted at the graduate level in the program, and they must be balanced by two course grades of "A". If a "C" is received within the first three courses, the student may be removed from the program by action.
