Page Background


Appeals Committee will convene consisting of the Dean of Students acting as the presiding officer (with no vote), one

faculty member, the student’s RD, one member of the Student Life staff, the Student Body Chaplain, and, if the

appealing student desires, two character references of his/her choice (with no vote). The Dean of Students may also

invite any student with relevant information to provide testimony to the committee. Once the committee has convened,

the presiding officer will invite the appropriate Associate Dean and RA into the meeting, along with the appealing

student and as many as two character references chosen by the student. The Associate Dean will be asked to state the

issues, after which the appealing student will be given every opportunity to state his appeal. When all parties are satisfied

that the issues have been clearly communicated and understood, the Associate Dean, appealing student, and character

references will be asked to leave, although the committee may request the return of the Associate Dean or the student

for further clarification. After any needed deliberation, the committee will come to a decision. Both the Associate Dean

and the student in question will then be asked to return. If the committee was not in agreement with the dismissal

decision, they give their reasoning and recommend a change in the decision. If the committee upholds the Associate

Dean’s decision, no further provision for appeal is available.


Institutional Semester GPA Regulation of 1.75

Any student-athlete having a semester GPA lower than 1.75 is subject to the following guidelines:


First semester freshman student-athletes are allowed a one semester grace period to improve their GPA before

being denied the privilege of representing the institution in athletics.


Student-athletes who do not have first-time freshman status or are transfer students will be denied playing

status during the next semester of attendance.


Once student-athletes raise their GPA to 1.75 or above, they can begin athletic participation and continue as

long as their semester GPA is maintained at 1.75 or above.

Institutional Cumulative Grade Point Average Regulation of 2.00

Student-athletes whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.00 are placed on academic probation. If they do not attain a

cumulative GPA of 2.00 or above for a second or any subsequent semester of enrollment, they will be denied

participation in intercollegiate programs and are subject to academic disqualification.


Institutional grade point averages can be raised

only by taking institutional credit hours.


The Master’s University is approved as a degree-granting institution for the acceptance of veteran benefits under Title

38, United States Code. This includes the programs covered in chapters 30, 31, 32, 33 (Post-9/11 and the Yellow Ribbon

Program), and 35 of Title 38, and chapter 1606 of Title 10. The Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education under the

State of California Department of Consumer Affairs has also authorized the University for the attendance of veterans

and dependents who are eligible to receive benefits. Veterans or their dependents who plan to enroll in the University

are urged to contact the VA School Certifying Official in the Office of Financial Aid well in advance of registration so

that the necessary arrangements may be made with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or the California

Department of Veterans Affairs.


Both the Air Force and the Army offer the ROTC program to TMU students under special arrangements that allow

TMU students to attend academic classes and earn their degree at TMU while participating in the ROTC program at

nearby universities. Air Force ROTC is offered at Loyola Marymount University (LMU), University of Southern

California (USC), and University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The Army offers ROTC at UCLA, which also

runs a satellite program at California State University, Northridge (CSUN).
