In exceptional circumstances, when a student is deficient in more than 6 credit hours, the student may be permitted to repeat the pre-Master's year or to write supplemental examinations (when offered) or to substitute equivalent course work in order to make up the deficiencies.
A student may be permitted to repeat the pre-Master's year only once, and to remove deficiencies in grades by writing supplemental examination or repeating courses only once for each course to a maximum of 9 credit hours of course work.
If a course is repeated or a supplemental examination is written, the highest grade obtained in that course will be used in the determination of the GPA.
The GPA is cumulative in a pre-Master's program if more than one year is required to complete the course requirements.
All action taken administratively is to be reported in summary form to the Faculty of Graduate Studies Executive Committee.
