Master of Science (MS)
General Policies & Standards
Students enrolled in the Master of Science program must adhere to specific academic standards throughout their time in the program. These include but are not limited to the following:
- Students must earn and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Failure to do so will result in academic probation. Successful completion of the program requires a minimum 3.0 GPA.
- For students in the Biomedical Professions program, a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 must be maintained in order to be guaranteed an interview at the DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine.
- For students in the Life Science Research major, the supervisory committee will review the academic record on a semester-by-semester basis. They will also review thesis project progress each semester. The student’s supervisory committee does have the authority to recommend removal of the student from the program.
- If the student is fulfilling deficiency courses, he or she must meet or exceed course grade percentages of 80% in their first semester courses, graduate and undergraduate, in order to be eligible for subsequent graduate course work. This requirement will be calculated by a combination of grades from undergraduate and graduate course work.
