Academic Performance Policy
Students in the MSW program at Florida A&M University must comply with the following academic performance policies:
1. Graduate students are required to maintain a “B” average (3.0 on an A=4.0 scale) in all required social work courses. 2. If the MSW student receives less than a “B” in a required course or the GPA is less than 3.0 overall in a particular semester, s/he will be placed on academic probation and will be required to repeat the required course and obtain a grade of “B” or better on the second attempt. 3. MSW students are given one attempt in which to raise the grade to 3.0 or above. Failure to do so will result in academic suspension from the MSW program. Students will not be allowed to proceed with further coursework until receiving a grade of “B” or better in a required course. 4. All MSW students must maintain a grade point average of 3.0 (A=4.0) each semester in order to be eligible to continue in the program.
