Provisional or Probationary Admission
An applicant may be accepted on a provisional or probationary basis if her/his cumulative grade point average is below the 3.0 requirement. The applicant will be required to take a graduate entrance exam (e.g. GRE or MAT) and must exhibit promise of greater academic achievement. Applicants granted provisional or probationary acceptance will be admitted with an academic warning (please see the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy in this catalog for more information about Academic Warning), which requires enrollment in one section of the Writing Workshop and a minimum of a 3.0 GPA after the completion of the first semester of study at The Seattle School.
Additionally, an applicant with a degree from a non-accredited institution may be granted provisional acceptance with full admission based on satisfactory work in residence. A copy of the institution's catalog, setting forth the program of instruction, faculty credentials, and learning resources shall be submitted at the time of the application. The applicant may also be asked to provide additional information to establish the equivalency of the degree from the non-accredited institution with a similar degree from an accredited institution. The applicant may be asked to provide additional information and additional course work may be required.
