Academic Progress

The continued pursuit of graduate study at New Jersey City University is dependent upon the maintenance of an acceptable level of academic performance: 

  1. A student who earns more than three course grades below “B” (3.00) may be dismissed from further graduate study, even if the student’s GPA is 3.00 or higher. 
  2. Courses in which the student earns an “F” grade are not counted toward degree requirements. NOTE: “F” grades are counted into the student’s cumulative GPA and are not replaced by any higher grade earned if the course is repeated. 
  3. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.00 is required for graduation from a graduate degree and/or diploma program. 
  4. The policies stated above establish minimum university-wide requirements for the degree. 

*NOTE: Students should check their specific certificate or degree requirements under the department’s program descriptions both in this catalog and at the department’s website for exceptions to the above with respect to course grades and overall GPA.
