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:

  1. Academic suspension – occurs when the student has earned less than a 2.0 GPA and the student is changed to non-degree seeking.
  2. 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.
