Demonstration of completion of the 103 credits in the professional curriculum is required for the student to be granted the M.P.A.S. degree. General graduate academic policies and regulations can be found elsewhere in the Grand Valley State University Undergraduate and Graduate Catalog or bulletin.
In addition, for each PAS course or a discrete unit of instruction in the professional curriculum, a minimum proficiency level of 80 percent on all evaluations as described in course syllabi is required. A minimum of a grade "C" is required for passing all "non-PAS" courses, however, the GPA must never drop below the 3.0 or "B" minimum in any semester or the student may be dismissed from the PAS program.
