In the admissions process, we determined that your undergraduate GPA or GRE scores are below the department’s minimum standards. Because you otherwise show promise, you have been admitted to the program. However, admission is conditioned to your performance in the first 6 units completed at USC in your first semester. If, for some reason, you are unable to attain a GPA in excess of 3.0 in the first 6 units the department will consider remedies, which may include discontinuation from the program. However, discontinuation has been rarely used in the past.
