Academic Policies

  • Students must maintain a grade point average of “B” (3.0). Students whose averages fall below 3.0 are placed on academic probation. Failure to bring the average up to 3.0 during the next semester of registration will result in academic dismissal. No more than four (4) hours of “C” (2.0) work may be included as degree credit. A course may only be repeated once. A grade of “D”,”F”, or “WF” will result in academic dismissal.
  • Students may request a one-year leave of absence from the program by submitting a written request to the program director. If a student is absent from the program for more than one year (three semesters), the student must apply for readmission.
  • All credit applied to a degree program must be earned within six (6) years of the first registration.
  • Faculty members approve all academic policies for Graduate Studies programs.
  • Students may request to change from full-time to part-time or from part-time to full-time by submitting a written request to the program director.

Transfer Credits

Degree-seeking students may apply for transfer of up to twelve (12) semester hours of graduate-level coursework by filing out an Application for Transfer Credit form. Transfer credit is approved only when the following conditions are met:

  • Courses submitted for transfer must have been completed within the six years prior to beginning the program.
  • Before taking a course intended for transfer, a student must submit the Application for Transfer Credit form and supply course syllabi and a course description from the course catalog that specifically describes course name, number, course requirements, and content. The student should attach a cover letter stating which course or courses the transferred courses will replace in the student’s program of studies and a rationale for the substitution. This material should be submitted to the Holt Student Services.
  • Upon completion of the substitute course, a student must supply an official transcript that verifies that the course or courses being submitted for transfer were completed with a grade of “B” or better.
  • The department chair, core faculty members, and the instructor(s) primarily responsible for teaching the course(s) for which a substitution is proposed will determine if the transfer is appropriate. Courses will be approved for transfer only if there is substantial consistency between the proposed transfer course and the required course.

Internship/Fieldwork
