Termination of Degree Candidacy

A student’s candidacy for a graduate degree may be terminated (suspension without the option of readmission) by the Associate Dean for Graduate Programs for reasons that include, but are not limited to, failure to make satisfactory academic progress toward the completion of their degree requirements or findings of academic misconduct.

A student whose degree candidacy has been terminated for any reason will be notified in writing by the Associate Dean for Graduate Programs for the GW School of Business. The student shall have the right of appeal. The student must present the grounds of appeal to the Associate Dean for Graduate Programs for the GW School of Business in writing within 30 days of the date of the Associate Dean’s letter terminating the degree candidacy.
