Progress and Retention Requirements
All students seeking admission, provisionally admitted, or fully admitted to a graduate program in the School of Architecture and Engineering Technology and who are enrolled in upper-division or graduate courses within the School are required to meet all of the provisions outlined in the university Catalog for satisfactory progress and retention as determined by the School of Graduate Studies and Research. The requirements for satisfactory progress for such students are different from the general requirements for progress and retention for students admitted and enrolled in undergraduate degree programs.
 
Students provisionally admitted and fully admitted to graduate programs in the School of Architecture and Engineering Technology who fail to maintain the required conditions for progress and retention could face termination of their graduate student status. A failing grade in a required course or a grade below that required for advancement in the student's graduate curriculum as described in the Catalog requires course retake. Such retakes follow different grade forgiveness policies from those that apply to undergraduate students' grades.
