Students who receive financial aid through the Department are expected to pursue a minimum of 6 approved credit hours per semester. Under special circumstances this requirement may be waived partially or in full by Department Head and DGS; in that case the student must register for Math 8333. Those students holding regular ("half-time") graduate teaching/research assistantships must demonstrate normal progress towards the degree by completing at least 16 approved credit hours a year with a combined grade point average for these credits of 3.0 or higher. First-year students satisfying these requirements in addition to carrying no more than 3 unresolved "I" grades are normally reappointed automatically (at or near the end of the Spring semester).
Any student receiving financial aid with grade point average below 3.0 or with more than 3 unresolved "I" grades is placed on "probation". If on probation at reappointment time, a student may be granted a reappointment on a semester-by-semester basis, possibly at a lower percentage of time, with future reappointments contingent either on the student's removing his/her probationary status or satisfying other stipulations as indicated by the Graduate Program Committee.
