What if one of my graduate students receives a grade below B- in a course?

  • If a graduate student receives a grade of "C" in a course, the Graduate Handbook specifies those courses that a graduate student must remediate.
  • According to the Graduate College, grades below "C (2.0)" are not counted toward completion of requirements for any advanced degree, but are counted in evaluating a student's grade point average. Thus, if a student receives a grade of C- or below, the course does not count toward degree requirements; in this situation, regardless of whether the graduate student remediated the course (per Departmental policy), the student would need to register for another course to fulfill degree requirements.
