Deficiency Points Policy

The MFT Program adheres to the following deficiency points system:

Earning grades below “B” in graduate courses result in the following consequences: Students will be dismissed from the MFT Program if they accumulate three or more academic deficiency points. A grade of “C” (although it may be credited toward a degree) equals one deficiency point. A grade of “D,” “WF,” or “F” (none of which can be credited toward a degree) equals two deficiency points each. Warning letters will be issued to students for each earned deficiency point until enough points are accumulated to warrant dismissal.
