STANDARDS OF SCHOLARSHIP
Although each student will be assisted by an adviser and other members of the professional staff, final responsibility for compliance with Graduate School policies rests with the student.
The GPA is determined by grades earned in the following:
Grounds for Academic Dismissal
Students who wish to petition for reinstatement must do so through the Graduate Board.
* Appeals concerning academic progress must start at the program/department level, then can move to the college level, and finally can be pursued at the Graduate Board level for substantive review.
Course Repetition Guidelines
"I" indicates that the requirements for a course have not been completed. This notation is allowed only upon the signing, by the instructor and graduate student, of a written contract for the completion of the work. Incompletes must be completed within one calendar year of the end of the semester in which they are given. An "I" may be changed to an "F" upon the expiration of the contract if the required work has not been completed.
Except by permission of the Graduate Dean, no graduate student who has two or more incompletes, each of which is at least one year old, may register until the total number of incompletes has been reduced to no more than one.
Having two or more Incompletes that are more than two years old is evidence of failure to make academic progress and, therefore, is grounds for dismissal.
A student may not graduate with an "I," "NR," or "MG" on his or her Temple University record.
Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act requires that each college or university establish due procedures for the resolution of grievances. For copies of the department/program policy or school/college procedure, students should contact their department.
Transfer of Credits into Master's Programs
All graduate credits taken prior to matriculation are subject to evaluation and approval by the student's departmental faculty and the assistant/associate dean of graduate studies.
Transfer of Credit guidelines are:
Transfer of Credit into Doctoral Programs
With the permission of the student's department or program, graduate credits taken at other accredited institutions may be counted towards completion of a Temple doctoral degree. The amount of advanced standing may not exceed the number of credits required for a Temple master's degree in that discipline.
Currency of Courses
Courses taken at Temple or elsewhere more than five years before matriculation cannot be used to meet that program's degree requirements. Some programs have shorter time limits.
