Academic Performance

As a graduate student, you have a right to periodic evaluation of your academic progress, performance, and professional potential. Your advisor is your primary reviewer, followed by your thesis/dissertation committee, and finally by the Tropical Plant Pathology graduate chair and graduate faculty. You should be in regular conversation with your advisor. Your advisor should be made aware of any academic or research troubles that you may encounter. Your thesis/ dissertation committee should meet at least once a year to review your progress and plans for the coming year.

TPP students are expected to remain in “Acceptable Academic Standing” during their tenure. To be in acceptable standing, students must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA, participate in seminar, and conduct research working towards their degree. A TPP student is making satisfactory progress toward their degree when they hold timely committee meetings, present their proposal, conduct their research, and defend on the schedule proposed and agreed upon by the student, advisor and committee. You have a right to receive a warning when your academic performance or progress is judged to be unsatisfactory.

As a student you can access your educational records. Your transcripts are viewable from the myuh portal. You can access the records that the Tropical Plant Pathology holds by asking your advisor or the graduate chair.
