All students are responsible for knowing academic and university policies. Policies specific to the M.S.M. and MA in HRM programs include the following:
- To graduate, students must earn an overall grade point average of at least a 'B' (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) on course work applied toward the master's degree, which may include no more than one course completed with a grade of 'C.' Students are permitted to retake, no more than one time each, up to two courses for which they earn less than a 'B' (3.0). The grade from the second enrollment in the course will replace the original grade for the purpose of calculating the grade point average. Any student who earns less than a 'B-' in more than three courses, or whose grade point average falls below a 'B' (3.0) for two consecutive semesters, may be subject to dismissal from the program.
- Students must complete the program's capstone course, Master's Capstone: Research, Synthesis, Applications, with a grade of 'B' or better.
- Students are allowed a maximum of 7 years from their initial enrollment to meet all degree requirements.
- Academic dishonesty (plagiarism, cheating, etc.) typically results in dismissal from the program.
Other important policies affecting master's students enrolled in CUA's Metropolitan School of Professional Studies may be found online at http://policies.cua.edu/. Students should familiarize themselves with the information contained under the "Academic Graduate" link in particular.
