Continuation Standards

Students must maintain a minimum 3.00 overall grade point average (GPA) and a 3.50 GPA in their major.  

Graduate Admission

Students will not need to apply for admission to the graduate program, assuming they graduate with a 3.50 overall GPA or above and have successfully obtained a "B" or better in each of the 12 credits of the accelerated sequence. Instead, students work with their academic coach to petition to be matriculated into the graduate program.

The program director will review the materials and make a final decision. If students do not meet the 3.50 overall GPA requirement or fail to obtain a "B" or better in the bridge program courses, they may submit a full application for admission, which requires supplemental materials that may improve the probability of admission.
