From MWSU Graduate School Policy Portal
If a graduate applicant fails to meet one of the admissions requirements the student may request a provisional admission for their first graduate semester. Requests for provisional admission must originate from the student in writing stating a justification for the exception. The student must attain departmental/program support, approval by the Academic Dean, and forward all written materials to the Graduate Dean for final approval. Full admission will be granted if the student attains a 3.0 GPA or better during the first semester of graduate studies at MWSU. Failure to achieve a 3.0 GPA will cause dismissal from the program. If dismissed, the student may re-apply for admission one year after the dismissal, subject to departmental review.
