A student must obtain a grade of C– or higher in the 12 “core” courses and an overall GPA of 2.000 or higher in those courses. Also, the student must have and overall GPA of 2.000 or higher in “core” courses listed as prerequisites in order to enroll in the senior capstone design course sequence: 10.409 Engineering Economics and Process Analysis and 10.410 Plant Design. In addition, a student is permitted only 3 attempts including withdrawals (except for medical reasons), to obtain a C– or higher grade in the “core” courses. If a student fails to earn a minimum grade after 3 attempts, the student will be “dismissed” from the program for one semester in which the student will not be allowed to enroll in any courses offered by the department. The student may apply for reinstatement into the program for the semester following the “dismissal” at which time the student will be allowed to enroll only in the department “core” course that caused the “dismissal” from the program as well as any other non-departmental courses to achieve full-time student status. The student must earn a grade of C- or better on the fourth attempt in order to continue in the program; otherwise the student will be permanently dismissed from the program. The student must also satisfy the University requirement of an overall GPA of 2.000 or higher to graduate.
