Graduate Studies Academic Requirements
Chadron State College Graduate School accepts all students who apply on the condition that they earn a Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 3.0 in the first nine course credits of graduate work. Successful candidates will be in good standing.
Failure to meet a GPA of at least 3.0 in the first nine course credits results in one of two outcomes:
- Academic suspension – occurs when the student has earned less than a 2.0 GPA and the student is changed to non-degree seeking.
- Academic probation – occurs when the student has earned less than a 3.0 but greater than a 2.0 GPA. Student has one semester or summer session to raise cumulative GPA to 3.0. If unsuccessful, the student will be suspended and switched to non-degree seeking.
Other academic considerations:
- No more than six course credits of graduate work with a grade of 2.0 (C) will be accepted toward program of study. Higher standards may be specified by individual programs.
- All attempted graduate course grades will be counted toward cumulative grade point average.
- Second suspensions will result in dismissal from the CSC graduate program and are non-appealable.
- Academic amnesty is not available at the graduate level.
