The following conditions or circumstances may provide sufficient cause for dismissal of a student from the Graduate School. If a student
- who has been placed on academic probation fails to resolve his or her academic deficiencies in the manner and in the time prescribed in here or by the Dean; or,
- fails any course; or,
- displays substantial deficiencies in his/her ability to perform effectively in a laboratory environment (as determined by one or more GSBS faculty members); or
- fails the Ph.D. candidacy examination.
The Academic Standards Committee will consider any questions concerning a student's academic progress in which dismissal is a possible outcome, and will make the decision concerning the dismissal of the student. If the student wishes to appeal the decision of the Academic Standards Committee, he or she may appeal to the Dean, who will consider the evidence and render a decision on the appeal. The Dean's decision is final.
POLICY FOR READMISSION OF STUDENTS DISMISSED FOR UNSATISFACTORY PROGRESS
Any student who withdraws from GSBS or is asked to leave because of unsatisfactory progress must wait one year before applying for readmission. Upon re-application, students are evaluated by the GSBS Admissions Committee on a case-by-case basis. Those who appear to have the potential to complete the degree program successfully are recommended for admission to the Dean. The Dean makes the final decision concerning readmission.
