Completion Requirements

Retention Requirements for all EMC Options

  1. Students must earn a minimum grade of C in all courses with an EMC prefix and maintain an overall G.P.A. of 2.0 to remain in good standing in the program.
  2. Students who fall below a 2.0 G.P.A. will be placed on departmental probation.  Students on departmental probation will have one semester to increase their G.P.A. to the required level.  Failure to do so will result in loss of matriculation.
  3. Students may attempt an EMC course twice.  An attempt is interpreted as a grade entered on a transcript. This would include grades of “W” or “X”.   Following two unsuccessful attempts at any EMC course, the student may be de-matriculated from the EMC curriculum.
  4. EMC courses are valid as prerequisites for continuation of courses for three academic years.  For example, if a student successfully completed EMC 144 in the fall 2005 semester, the next course in the sequence (EMC 155) must be taken no later than the spring 2008 semester. Accelerating changes in the electronic media industry and ever-increasing advances in technology mandate that establishing a limit of three academic years for EMC courses to be valid as prerequisites is necessary to ensure that students begin upper-level courses with a skill level that is current and relevant.
