CDM students must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) to stay in good academic standing. Failure to meet the guidelines and return to good academic standing within the time frame specified may result in dismissal from the University.
CDM follows the University policy for academic probation found in the Undergraduate Academic Handbook. Students on probation receive notification after the grading deadline. Any specific criteria they must meet in order to continue enrollment in the following term are clearly stated. Criteria for continued enrollment may include, but are not limited to:
- Meeting with an academic advisor
- Development of an academic improvement plan
- Limit to the number of credit hours that may be taken the next term
- Enrollment in specific courses
Undergraduate students who are dismissed and wish to return to DePaul University should consult with an academic advisor regarding the criteria required for readmission. In general, CDM follows the University policy for dismissal/readmission found in the Undergraduate Academic Handbook; however, additional criteria for readmission may be required in individual cases.
CDM graduate students who fail to maintain a cumulative graduate grade point average of at least 2.500 are placed on academic probation. Students on probation receive notification after the grading deadline. Any specific criteria they must meet in order to continue enrollment in the following term are clearly stated. Graduate students may remain on probation for no more than three (3) terms, including summer, or sixteen (16) credit hours attempted, whichever comes first. After three terms (or 16 credits), the student's cumulative GPA must reach 2.500 or the student may be dismissed from the college. Graduate students who are dismissed are not eligible for readmission to CDM.
