At Cumberland University, a fully admitted graduate student is one who has met all admission requirements and has been given acceptance notice by the program director.
A provisionally admitted graduate student is one who has met at least the minimum requirement of having a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited university, submitted an application and fee, but has not met all the admission requirements. Students admitted provisionally will receive a letter from the director detailing why their admission is provisional.
Students must complete the requirements to be fully admitted prior to enrolling for more than six graduate credits or one semester. If a student does not meet the specified admission requirements, he/she may petition the director for an exception. This must be done prior to enrolling in additional graduate coursework. Enrollment in all graduate studies programs is subject to acceptance into the program.
