​Students who fail to meet the academic standards of the University or School of Music may be dismissed. If a student earns less than a 2.5 GPA for two consecutive quarters, and/or fails to make meaningful progress towards the degree, the student is subject to dismissal. Any student who is dismissed will be notified in writing and will meet with the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. Appeals for dismissal should be submitted in writing to the School of Music Exceptions committee, clearly stating reasons for the academic problem and a plan to address the situation.​​​​
