Academic Standing

Students in Pre-professional Component of Program (First Year)   First-year students in the pre-professional component of the program are considered to be in good academic standing if they have a semester average of at least 1.80 and no more than one grade below C-. Students who fail to remain in good academic standing will be placed on academic probation. A student is subject to suspension after two semesters on academic probation. A grade of D is included in the student's grade point average and counts toward credits earned. An F grade is included in the student's grade point average but does not count toward credits earned.

Students in Professional Component of Program   Students in the professional component of the program are considered to be in good academic standing if they have a semester average of at least 2.0 and no grades below a C- in required nursing courses. Grades of D and F are failing grades for all required nursing courses in the professional component of the program. Students receiving a grade of D or F in a required course in the professional component will be placed on academic probation and must successfully repeat the course with a grade of C- or above. This may alter the planned sequence of courses and may lengthen the time for completion of the program. A student will be placed on academic probation if their semester's average falls below 2.0. A student in the professional component of the program is subject to suspension if (1) the student receives a total of two Ds or one F in the professional component; or (2) the student's grade point average is below 2.0 for two semesters.
