Acceptable academic performance

Boise State expects all graduate students to strive toward—and attain—academic excellence. If your academic performance is unsatisfactory, you may be withdrawn from the degree program by the Dean of the Graduate College, acting on the recommendation of your department.

To be eligible to receive a degree from the Graduate College, you must have a grade-point average (GPA) of 3.00 (B) or better in all graduate work specific to your program of study. You must receive a grade of A or B in a 300G- or 400G-level course in order to count those credits toward your graduate degree. You cannot count grades below C to meet any requirement of a graduate degree program.

If you earn a cumulative GPA of less than 3.00 for two consecutive semesters, you will be withdrawn from the graduate program and academically disqualified for any further graduate level work.
