Admission Categories

If accepted, the student will receive an official letter of acceptance. The student’s letter of acceptance into a graduate program is valid for up to one year from the date of the letter.

Acceptance

All admission criteria have been met, and all admission materials have been received.

Conditional Acceptance

The student has not met all admission requirements. Remaining requirements must be met prior to deadlines stated in the acceptance letter.

Provisional Acceptance

Admitted students who do not have the minimum incoming GPA, grade standards, or other assessment criteria will receive provisional acceptance. Provisionally-accepted students are encouraged to meet with their Student Success Advisor soon after beginning their course of study to develop a plan to experience early academic success.

Provisional Evaluation

Provisional evaluation provides an early assessment of academic success specific to provisionally-accepted students. Provisional evaluation occurs at the end of the term in which a provisionally-accepted student has completed a cumulative total of two A-F letter-graded courses.

If the student meets the minimum required cumulative Bethel GPA for good standing (3.0) at the time of their provisional evaluation:

  • The student will be allowed to continue in their program of study.
  • The student will begin to be evaluated for Academic Standing in accordance with the Academic Standing policy in the term following their provisional evaluation.
If the student does not meet the minimum required cumulative Bethel GPA for good standing at the time of their provisional evaluation, the student will be academically dismissed.
