Graduate students must complete their program within six (6) years of matriculation.
All courses must be passed with a “C” (2.0) or better to be counted in the degree.
Students must earn a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 (“B” average) out of a 4.0 scale to graduate.
The student may be given an opportunity to repeat a course once at their own expense, but the program cannot accommodate offering the course outside of the sequencing provided. If the student receives less than a 2.0 (“C”) a second time, the student will automatically be dismissed from the program.
Many of the courses offered in the Arts Administration Department are offered every other year. Students should consult with the department to plan accordingly.
If a student receives less than a Pass (“P”) in the Capstone Internship and/or Degree Defense, the student will not be granted the Master of Fine Arts degree and will be dismissed from the program. The Capstone Internship and the Degree Defense may not be repeated.
