Probationary Status
An applicant not meeting the requirements for degree status may be considered for admission to
the graduate program in mathematics on a probationary status.  Since the requirements for
probationary status vary with the student's  background.  The student is advised to first obtain
admission to the College of Graduate Studies and then make contact with the graduate coordinator
for mathematics concerning stem work.

NOTE:  a graduate student admitted to the mathematics program on a probationary status will be
allowed to complete twelve (12) semester hours of graduate work.  If the student so admitted presents
a GRE (quantitative plus verbal) score > 1000 before completing the twelve semester hours and maintains
both an overall GPA on graduate courses > 3.00 and a GPA in mathematics courses > 3.00 on a 4.00 scale on
the twelve semester hours, then the student may apply for degree status.  Otherwise, the student is dismissed
from the graduate program in mathematics. (Courses taken for stem work are not counted on the degree.)
