Key Features

Academic Standards and Probation

University Academic Standards

All graduate students at Texas Tech University must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. If a student’s cumulative GPA falls below 3.0, he/she is placed on academic probation. At this time, the student has two consecutive semesters to raise his/her cumulative GPA to at least 3.0. If during this two semester period, his/her semester GPA drops below a 3.0, the student is subject to suspension.

A student placed on suspension will be required to remain out of Graduate School for one semester. If a student is suspended two times, he/she will not be allowed to return to Graduate School. Any student who has been suspended must appeal to the Graduate School, according to OP 64.07, if reinstatement is desired. Summer sessions and/or trimester count as one semester.

Departmental Academic Standards

The Department of Chemical Engineering will permit only a single grade of C for courses listed on the Official Degree Plan. If a student earns two or more C’s or any single grade less than C, he or she must meet with a group consisting of the Faculty Advisor, Advisory Committee, and the department’s Graduate Advisor, Dr. Siva Vanapalli. This group will recommend appropriate action, which may include probation or suspension by the department.
