Unsatisfactory Academic Progress
A graduate student is deemed not to be making satisfactory academic progress if he or she has accumulated more than two open grades (INC). Students identified for unsatisfactory progress because of incomplete coursework will be given a strict deadline for completing the open grades on their transcript. They also may be limited as to the number of credits for which they can register or may be prevented entirely from registering in any semester until letter grades are entered on their transcripts for the courses involved. See INC GRADES policy.
Note: In order to receive Title IV Federal Financial Aid, a graduate student must at least meet the GPA required for good academic standing at the institution (3.0 at Lehman) and with the Office of Financial Aid, and:
- Not have attempted more than 150% of the credits normally required for completion of the degree.
- Accumulate credits toward the degree equal to or greater than two-thirds of the cumulative credits attempted at the institution.
Students whose financial aid is denied for reasons of insufficient academic progress may file a written appeal with the Office of Financial Aid.
