of Degree Candidacy: Restoration of degree candidacy requires a petition
to the Council on Graduate Studies. A graduate candidate who is reclassified
as a non-degree student because of a low GPA, an excess number of credits
below B, or for other reasons may continue to take graduate courses as
as a GPA of 2.50 or higher is maintained. Departments may restrict access
to courses for such students. If the student restores the cumulative GPA
to 3.00 or higher, he/she may request reinstatement to degree candidacy.
Similarly, students who have an excess number of credits below B or who
have been reclassified for other reasons, but who maintain or restore the
cumulative GPA to 3.00 or higher, may request reinstatement to degree candidacy.
Candidacy reinstatement may be requested to the original degree program
or to a new degree program. There is no guarantee that a student reclassified
as non-degree can be reinstated as a degree candidate in the original degree
program or in a new program.
