Enrollment Requirements for all Degree Programs
A student must meet the requirements listed here for continued enrollment in, and successful completion of, any of our graduate programs:
- Degree plans must be approved by the Director of Graduate Studies and must meet the specific requirements listed in this document for the degree program. These requirements are in addition to the general requirements of the University as described in the Graduate and Professional Studies Catalog.
- Students on F-1 or J-1 visas are required by U.S. law to be enrolled as full-time students.
- Only full-time students are eligible to receive financial support from the University in the form of scholarships, academic fellowships, teaching fellowships or assistantships, research fellowships or assistantships, or other comparable forms of support.
- Continuous enrollment in MECE 6111 Graduate Seminar is required of full-time students.
- A minimum grade point average of 3.00 over all graduate courses attempted is required for the successful completion of any graduate degree. See the specific degree program descriptions for any additional graduation requirements.
- No grade lower than "C-" can be counted toward the completion of the credit hour requirements for a degree program.
- Up to 6 credit hours of course work may be transferred from another institution with the approval of the Director of Graduate Studies.
- No course used for a prior degree can be repeated or applied to another degree.
- No more than 6 hours can be transferred from post-baccalaureate to the graduate credit level.
- The Four-C rule: the University requires that a graduate student who receives a grade of C+ or lower in 12 semester hours attempted at this institution for graduate credit or for application toward the graduate degree, whether or not in repeated courses, is ineligible for any advanced degree at this institution and will not be permitted to re-enroll for graduate study. Students wishing to enroll in courses not for graduate credit (hence not subject to the 4-C rule) must submit a written declaration to that effect to the Director of Graduate Studies prior to enrollment in those courses.
Changing degree programs requires approval of the Director of Graduate Studies and of the research advisor and may result in withdrawal of departmental financial support.
