Graduate Programs

Good Academic Standing for graduate students is defined as the condition of maintaining a minimum overall cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 in the graduate program. The first time that a student’s GPA falls below 3.0, the Program Director is notified and the student may be placed on Academic Probation. If, at the end of the semester on Academic Probation, the cumulative GPA is not 3.0 or better, the student is eligible for dismissal. At the discretion of the Program Director, a graduate student may continue for an additional semester on Academic Probation if they have improved their cumulative grade point average during the semester on probation.

A student may not receive a Master’s Degree from Dominican University of California with a cumulative graduate GPA below 3.0.
