Qualifying Year Program
A grade of C- is the minimum requirement for successful completion of each course. However, students in the qualifying program must achieve at least a B average in order to be academically eligible to apply for admission to a master's program.
Normally, at the end of a qualifying year the applicant must have completed a total of 20 full-credit courses, of which 10 must be at the senior level in the area selected for graduate study.
After completing a qualifying year, students may apply for admission to the master's program. Successful completion of a qualifying year does not guarantee admission into the master's program.
