They then have one semester to raise the GPA to 3.0 or better. Failure to do so will result in academic dismissal. A student cannot earn the Ph. D. degree with a final GPA below 3.0
If a student has withdrawn from the program in good standing, then they may be readmitted in the future without a formal application. If more than 5 years have elapsed, the student must obtain permission from the Dean or Program Director.
