Continuation Policy

Students are expected to maintain an overall GPA of 3.2 throughout their studies in order to continue in the program. Students who fail to maintain the minimum overall GPA of 3.2 or who demonstrate academic misconduct (such as cheating or plagiarism) may not be eligible to continue in the program. Performance will be evaluated at the end of every semester, and students will be informed if they are on probation. A probation status can only be maintained for one semester before a final decision is reached by the Asian Studies Graduate Committee.
