Graduate Academic Policies and Procedures

The Graduate Catalog states the academic policies and procedures. Please note that the statement on Academic Standing, as stated in the current Catalog, remains the same: “Every student in La Salle University’s graduate programs is required to maintain a cumulative scholastic average of 3.0, which translates to an overall G.P.A. equivalent to a B (a B- average is not sufficient).”

A student who receives a grade of “C” in two or more courses or a grade of “F” in one course may be dismissed from the program. A student who receives a grade of “B-” or below may be required to repeat the course, according to the specific program’s policy and with written approval of the director.

In addition, a student whose academic performance falls below this standard is subject to academic review by the director of the appropriate Graduate Program. Depending upon the degree of the academic deficiency, a student may be warned with regard to academic standing or required to withdraw from the program. A student with a cumulative grade point average below 3.0 is automatically in academic jeopardy whether or not he or she receives written notification of this status. A student must have a cumulative average of 3.0 or better to graduate from La Salle University. “A student with serious academic deficiencies will be required to withdraw from the program. A student admitted on a conditional basis who has a cumulative grade point average of less than 3.0 upon the completion of 6 or 9 credits (depending upon the specific program), may be required to withdraw from the program …”
