Academic Dismissal

Dismissal of a student from a graduate program is considered a very serious action. Files must show evidence of prior counseling with the student and other precautions taken and should contain written documentation of requests to remediate the problem.

The Dean of the Graduate School is responsible for dismissal of graduate students. The Dean will act on recommendations from the department chair (and the CAS Dean if appropriate) and will notify the student formally of the recommendation and explain the appeals process. These recommendations will be well documented and state clearly the justification for dismissal.

The Dean of the Graduate School will obtain all information necessary in each case and, if necessary, make inquiries to the department chair. Dismissal from a program constitutes dismissal from the university, unless the student is actively enrolled in two programs simultaneously.

Disciplinary actions or dismissals for non-academic reasons are handled under the direction of the Provost. Appropriate department and campus officials will be notified of any dismissal.
