Remediation for Failing Grades Download to print
An F (fail) or U (unsatisfactory) grade can be remedied by receiving a satisfactory grade after remediation of a course or clinical rotation. Both the initial grade F or U and the satisfactory grade (no higher than the grade C) received after remediation are noted on the transcript. However, the original grade of F or U is not calculated into the GPA.
Any student in the four- or five-year program with one course or rotation failure will be recommended for placement on academic probation. Remediation of the failed course will take place during the four-week period beginning the day after the student’s current academic year.
The four-week remediation period may continue into the next academic year.
Students will be charged tuition for remediation. No grade higher than a C can be achieved for any remediation course. Failure of a remedial course or rotation will result in academic dismissal with right of appeal.
Students are advised that remediation takes precedence over all other educational responsibilities.
Remediation is conducted in a manner that is at the discretion of the course coordinator. Prearranged personal travel is not a qualified excuse to be absent from any scheduled meeting or examination.
