- To be considered for admission in full graduate standing, an applicant must have a baccalaureate degree from a college or university recognized as standard by a regional or general accrediting agency and must have at least a "B" (3.0) average in the undergraduate major or in the latest graduate degree program.
- Provisional admission may be granted to applicants with bachelor's degrees from accredited institutions but who lack undergraduate work that is considered essential for graduate study in a major field. Course work, without graduate credit, will be required to make up such deficiencies before admission to full status can be granted.
- Full graduate standing is granted when the deficiencies responsible for the provisional status are corrected provided that the student has maintained a satisfactory academic record (3.0 Grade Point Average) on all course work taken in a graduate classification. A change from provisional status to full graduate standing is effected only upon the recommendation of the department in which the student is seeking the degree.
- Students with bachelor's degrees from accredited institutions whose scholastic records are below the standards for admission to full graduate standing may be admitted provisionally when unavoidable, extenuating circumstances affected their undergraduate averages or when progressive improvement in their undergraduate work warrants provisional admission. Students admitted provisionally under these circumstances will have their status changed to full graduate standing after completion of nine or more graduate credit hours following admission provided the student has maintained a GPA of at least 3.0.
Any change in the admission date must be requested in writing and approved by the Department of Entomology and The Graduate School. [ back to list ]
