Retention and Completion Requirements
The program requires that a minimum of a 3.0 GPA (Grade Point Average) be maintained through the complete curriculum.
A student that falls below this standard, at any time, is automatically in academic jeopardy and he/she is subject to academic review by the Director. A student falling below the GPA requirements will be allowed the two following semester to bring his/her GPA to a 3.0 or better.
Failure to accomplish this will result in the dismissal from the program.
In order to earn the M.A. in TESOL, students must complete, successfully, all core and elective courses for a total of 36 credits in the program.
Once an applicant is accepted into the program, a maximum of 7 years will be allowed for the successful completion of the program.
Only in extreme circumstances will a “leave of absence” be granted. When a leave of absence is granted, it will not exceed a maximum of one year and the period of leave granted will not count toward the maximum 7 years permitted to complete the program.
