A student on regular status is placed on probation if, after completing eight semester hours of graduate work, the cumulative grade-point average on graduate work done at the University of Iowa falls below an established base (3.00 for the M.A.; 3.25 for the Ph.D.). If, after completing eight more semester hours at the University, the grade-point average remains below the established base, the student is denied permission to register for classes. Only one semester of academic probation is allowed. Please note that the standards for Art History graduate students are higher than and take precedence over those stated in the Graduate College Manual of Rules and Regulations.
