Dear Graduate Student,
The review of your undergraduate cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) shows it does not meet the 2.75 GPA requirement for admittance into a graduate program. However, there is still a way provided for you to be accepted into the Master’s program at Strayer University. Please provide a letter of explanation, a resume, and transcripts that may explain and reveal evidence of graduate potential for the Dean to review. (You can review the policies for graduate admission and graduation requirements in the online catalog. The catalog is located at https://icampus.strayer.edu/iCampus. On the left side bar, you’ll find a link for “Catalogs,” click that and then scroll down to the bottom of the page and choose “Strayer University Online.”) I. Compose a letter to the Campus Dean, Dr. Michael Otaigbe, that provides the following: a. A detailed explanation as to why you feel as though you were not able to earn a higher GPA. b. A detailed explanation as to what may be different now that will enable you to be successful and to achieve and maintain a 3.0 or higher.
c. Review and include a statement that indicates you have read and understand the graduation requirements in the catalog, which includes, but is not limited to: 1. Required undergraduate prerequisite courses for your declared graduate program
2. GPA requirement
3. Grade requirements for specified courses in the graduate program 4. The letter will also act a demonstration of your writing ability. Graduate courses are writing intensive and all students are expected to be able to write utilizing superior grammar and proper spelling. Please note: APA (American Psychological Association) is the required writing style at Strayer University. Your letter must be signed, as you would a business letter. II. Provide an updated resume that shows a minimum of 3 years of professional or business experience and graduate potential.
