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. Rajesh Khare. This group will recommend appropriate action, which may include probation or suspension by the department.
