Provisional Admission Policy

If a candidate does not meet the minimum requirements for the School of Education, or supplemental requirements for any specific degree program, provisional admission may be offered.

  • GPA requirement – If an applicant’s GPA is below 3.0 and is offered provisional admission, the student must receive a grade of “B” or better in their first 9 credits AND complete those credits within the first two terms from admission (does not include J-term).
  • Basic Skills requirement – If a student does not demonstrate basic skills competency at time of application and is offered provisional admission, the student must demonstrate basic skills competency within the first two terms from admission (does not include J-term).

If a student does not meet the requirements of their provisional admission within the time allowed, the student may be withdrawn from their coursework and degree program. If the student wishes to return to their program, they must qualify for full admission through a new application.
