The Committee for Satisfactory Academic Progress and Professional Standards (CAPPS) reviews students’ academic and nonacademic performance.  The  CAPPS  determines  if students are making satisfactory  academic  progress,  are  to  be  recommended  for dismissal, or are permitted to continue on academic or nonacademic probation  under specific conditions with a defined plan to remedy deficiencies within the specific program regulations. The Committee has the prerogative to request that students appear before the CAPPS. The Dean of Students, in consultation with the course directors, faculty advisors, and the Department of Educational Services, monitors students’ academic progress on an ongoing basis. This monitoring occurs to support the overall success of students. If students have concerns about their academic progress that have not been satisfactorily addressed, they should contact their faculty advisor or the Chair of the Graduate Affairs Committee within the department with which they are registered.
