Conditionally-Admitted Students – M.S. in Epidemiology program
We may offer conditional admission in cases where an applicant falls just short of our admissions standards, but shows promise and potential.
If conditional admission is offered, the student will be required to complete a minimum of six (6) and maximum of nine (9) credits in the first term in which he/she was admitted (six (6) credits for summer term) and must maintain a 3.0 or better Grade Point Average (GPA); grades of W or WF are not permitted for conditionally-admitted students.
A hold will be placed on the student’s record to prohibit registration past the first semester.
Upon completion of the first semester coursework, the program director will review the applicant file. To be considered eligible to become a matriculated student, a conditionally-admitted student must meet the following criteria:
If a student does not meet these criteria, he/she will not be permitted to register for additional courses.
