When a student is admitted with provisional status, the stipulations and timeline are filed by the graduate program with the Graduate College. At the end of each enrolled semester (including summers), the Graduate College and the graduate program, working in collaboration, review the student’s progress and take one of the following actions:
- Promote the student to “regular” status if the program determines that the stipulations of the provisional admission have been met.
- Continue the student on provisional status if the stipulations of provisional admission have not been met and the program recommends continuation.
- Dismiss the student from the program and Boise State University if the stipulations of provisional admission have not been met and the program recommends dismissal. Students who are dismissed are administratively withdrawn from their courses and cannot register for classes until they are either reinstated to the graduate program or readmitted to the Graduate College. Students who request reinstatement (following Boise State policy #3090) and are granted reinstatement to the program within 30 calendar days are not required to reapply to the Graduate College. After 30 days, students must submit a new online application and application fee.
In each case, the Graduate College informs the graduate program and the student via email (using the student’s Boise State email address, according to Boise State policy #2280).
If a student submits an Application for Admission to Candidacy (AAC) form while on provisional status, approval by the Graduate College will be delayed until the provisions have been met and the student has been promoted to regular status.
