of 3.0 for all graduate coursework taken during the course of graduate
studies. Should the cumulative GPA fall below 3.0, the student will be

GPA to a 3.0 by the end of the next semester or face possible dismissal.

register for their final semester of coursework. All students must
complete and file with the Department Office both the UMKC Application
