2024-2025 Undergraduate/Graduate Catalog

Academic Probation/Academic Dismissal Policies

Students who drop below a 3.00 average will receive a letter from the Registrar's Office, informing them that they are no longer in good academic standing and that they have been placed on academic probation or dismissed from their programs.

In addition to grade-point requirements for good academic standing, students should note that no more than two grades of C+ or C (i.e. two C’s, or two C+’s , or one C and one C+) are permitted for courses included on the planned program of graduate study leading to a doctoral or master's degree or sixth-year certificate. Students who achieve grades low enough so that they will not be able to attain the 3.00 GPA required for graduation, will be dismissed from the graduate program.

Students who are dismissed from graduate study may request re-enrollment upon attainment of a 3.00 grade point average on the Central Connecticut State University graduate record. Forms for requesting file re-enrollment are available on the Graduate Admissions website, www.ccsu.edu/grad. Along with submitting the re-enrollment form to Graduate Admissions, the student must submit to the department offering the program any additional materials that are required by the department for its review of the file. A department may also consider prior performance in the program when reviewing for re-enrollment file of a student who has been formally dismissed by the University.
