Residence is defined as the number of courses or credits a student must earn at an institution in order to be awarded a degree from that institution. Residency at Marquette for all undergraduate students is this: 1) a minimum of 60 Marquette credits, or credits earned in an approved study abroad program. are required to earn a Marquette undergraduate degree; 2) for students admitted in Summer 2010 or beyond, the final 30 credits needed to complete a Marquette undergraduate degree must be Marquette credits, or credits earned in an approved study abroad program; for students admitted prior to Summer 2010, 30 of the final 36 requirements needed to complete a Marquette undergraduate degree must be Marquette credits, or credits earned in an approved study abroad program; 3) a minimum of 32 upper-division Marquette credits, or credits earned in an approved study abroad program, are required to earn a Marquette undergraduate degree; 4) a minimum of 15 Marquette credits in the major are required to earn a Marquette undergraduate degree. Any exception to this policy must be approved by the Office of the Provost.
Students with a baccalaureate degree who wish to further their education are strongly encouraged to consider the option of graduate school, rather than pursuing an additional baccalaureate degree.
A student who encounters problems arising from course matriculation's, advancement to candidacy, degree requirements, or general regulations should follow the academic appeal procedure that starts with the academic advisor. If a student wishes to appeal the decision, the Dean may refer the matter to an appeals panel for investigation and a recommended course of action. Appeals that move beyond the Dean, College of Nursing, should be referred to the Office of Graduate Programs who may refer the matter to the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Students assume responsibility for all consequences that ensue as a result of receiving any withdrawal grade. These consequences may include, but are not limited to: a delay in graduation, denial of readmission, external institutions/entities viewing these grades as failing grades, loss of eligibility for certain scholarships and/ or financial aid, loss of full-time status and/or loss of a refund.
Re-evaluation of credentials is a status change for students who were not accepted as graduate degree status (an unconditional acceptance). These are students who received a special acceptance or have been provisionally accepted into the program. Students must have their credentials re-evaluated before completing twelve (12) credit hours of course work. If a student was accepted with a GPA lower than 2.75: 12 credit hours will need to be completed, a GPA of 3.0 or better, and GRE Scores submitted (if this has not been submitted already). The request for re-evaluation of credentials must be submitted before the 12th class day for the semester desired for it to be applied as an official status change.

Reactivation is a type of re-admission to the Graduate School. Continuing students who have sat out the program for no more than two (2) years and want to return must be reactivated into the university system. In addition, the student must be in good academic standing have no withdrawals from the last semester attended. This request must be made through the coordinator or academic advisor for completion.
Students are allowed only TWO (2) withdrawals (W) from required nursing courses. For example, a withdrawal from one course twice constitutes TWO (2) withdrawals; or a withdrawal from two different courses constitutes TWO (2) withdrawals. Withdrawal from a course that is a companion to a co-requisite course will constitute ONE withdrawal if the grade is passing in one of the above courses. A third withdrawal from any one or more courses will result in DISMISSAL from the nursing program.
This grade must be initiated by the student and approved by the instructor prior to the end of the session in which the class is offered and must be assigned by the instructor prior to the final grading deadline for the term/session in which the class is offered. This grade may be assigned only when a documented circumstance beyond the control of the student arises. The performance in the course must merit this exception, otherwise, the instructor must assign a grade that reflects both the quality of the work completed and the significance of the work/exam that has not been completed. This grade will not be assigned after the session in which the class is offered has ended. Submission of this grade requires a last date of attendance.
All undergraduate students must maintain a cumulative grade point average, as outlined in the Undergraduate Academic Censure policy in this bulletin.
This grade is cleared through the college office of the college offering the course. If not cleared or changed to the grade of IE by the date specified in the the grade will automatically become a permanent grade of F. Retroactive withdrawals may not replace an I grade. Because these grades denote that the student did not fulfill all course requirements and/or the final exam, the university views these grades with the same seriousness as the grade of F.
Marquette uses the grade point system to determine a student’s academic grade point average, academic censure and his/her eligibility to graduate (see Graduation Requirements section of this bulletin.) Each grade (A through F) earned in a course carries a specified number of grade points. The grade points earned in any given course equal the grade point value of the grade multiplied by the total number of semester hours credited. A student’s grade point average is found by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of semester hours credited in those courses for which grade points have been assigned. The official Marquette GPA of all students is calculated by the student information system and this GPA will not be rounded up or down for any reason.
The fact that a student did not attend class, does not relieve that student of the obligation to pay any tuition and/or fees that are due. Students assume responsibility for all consequences that ensue as a result of receiving any withdrawal grade. Theses consequences may include, but are not limited to: a delay in graduation, denial of readmission, external institutions/entities viewing this grade as a failing grade, loss of eligibility for certain scholarships and/or financial aid, loss of full-time status and/or loss of the 100% refund. Refund calculation for this grade will be based on the date the University is first informed of the non-attendance.
