As Indicated in your Acceptance LetterMatriculation no restrictions on registration. Conditional Matriculation: students that have not submitted all necessary information to Graduate Admission. Typically, these students are limited to two classes (unless otherwise indicated in the acceptance letter). Students must complete application in order to register after first semester.Provisional Matriculation: students whose progress will be monitored because of academic concerns. These students must achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 by the time they complete 12 credits in order to maintain enrollment (not including pass/fail courses). Students who require English language courses are also included in this category.
ALL students must maintain a 3.0 QPA or they are potentially subject to academic review and dismissal!
A 3.0 cumulative QPA is required to graduate.
‘I-F’ grades must be completed within six weeks from the end of the course or the grade will automatically become an ‘F’. Courses in which an ‘F’ is received must be retaken.
Recomputation option: One-time only option to recalculate a grade for your GPA when the class is retaken. (The original grade appears on the transcript but is not calculated into your GPA.) You may recompute “F” or “I-F” grades ONLY!
Calculating your Cumulative GPA
Multiply the number of credits for a course by the points per credit for the grade you received in the course to get the ‘grade points’ for a course. Add all the ‘grade points’. Divide that sum by the total number of credits to get your cumulative grade point average.

REMEMBER: Students who are in the United States on a student visa must enroll in 9 or more credits each Fall and Spring semester. You are not required to take summer courses. Although ELI courses are technically 0 credits, the International Office will help you to secure a visa deviation.
The ELI website has important pre-arrival information including Health Insurance, Employment Rules, Visa Status, Obtaining a Social Security Number. Conduct a search for ENGLISH LANGUAGE INSTITUTE for the appropriate link.
If you are interested in campus housing search for HOUSING from the main page.
If you are required to take the English Placement Examination (see your acceptance letter), you must receive your examination results BEFORE registering.
If you are required to take ELI 084A and ELI 084S, you can only take ONE ADDITIONAL COURSE (in the Spring 2003 semester you will then take ENG 040).
If you are required to take ENG 040, you can only take TWO ADDITIONAL COURSES.
If you are required to take one ELI 084 course and ENG 040, you can only take ONE ADDITIONAL COURSE.
If you were not referred to an ELI course or ENG 040, you will need to take the BUS 043 proficiency exam at Orientation!
