Students receiving letters of dismissal will automatically be dropped from all graduate courses, regardless of whether they choose to appeal, and will receive a full refund of fees. A "W" grade will then be entered on the transcript for all graduate courses not completed. Students receiving dismissal letters after the 10th day of classes may petition the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research for permission to complete the graduate courses in which they are enrolled. Students who appeal the dismissal will be blocked from registration for further graduate courses during the appeals process itself. See also the section of this catalog entitled "Appeal of Dismissal."
A graduate student may be dismissed from a graduate program by a department/college according to the policy described in the Appeal of Dismissal section.
