Academic Standards:

All students are required to remain in good academic standing during the course of their study. Good academic standing is achieved by maintaining at least a B (3.0) average. A student whose record falls below the program academic standards at any time or whose performance otherwise indicates a lack of ability or effort needed to succeed in the Wadsworth Center's MLS program may be denied permission for further study. A student academically dismissed will have the Wadsworth Center stipend withdrawn effectively the date of dismissal.
