Policy

Graduate and post-baccalaureate students must successfully complete a minimum of half (50%) of credit hours attempted each period of enrollment. Attempted hours are hours for which a charge was incurred, excluding audited hours. Graduate students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.75 and successfully complete classes with grades of A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, CR or PR in order to receive course credit for the degree. Please note: in 400-level courses students must receive a grade of B or higher to receive graduate credit. Students seeking a teaching license must receive a grade of C or higher in courses (graduate and undergraduate) they are taking for their teaching content areas. Students will be reviewed to evaluate if they are meeting the Standards of Academic Progress at the end of each semester of enrollment. In the event that a student fails to meet the criteria established above, the student will be placed on financial aid warning. For students in warning status, financial aid from all sources will automatically continue for the subsequent semester of enrollment. If the student does not return to satisfactory academic progress at the completion of the semester, the student will be placed on financial aid suspension. Financial aid suspension means the termination of all Federal, state, and institutional support. Students who choose to attend JCU while on financial aid suspension may do so at their own expense and will not regain eligibility for financial aid until academic progress is being made. The complete policy can be found on the Financial Aid website.
