Satisfactory progress toward an advanced degree as determined by the faculty is required at all times. The degree director will inform USC Price students who fail to make satisfactory progress.
Faculty advisors and departments take factors other than satisfactory grades and adequate GPA’s into consideration in determining a student’s qualifications for an advanced degree. A student’s overall academic performance, specific skills and aptitudes, and faculty evaluations will be considered in departmental decisions regarding a student’s continuation in a master’s or doctoral degree program. The faculty has the right to recommend at any time after written warning that a student be dismissed from a graduate program for academic reasons or that a student be denied readmission.
