Modified Status

A student whose program has been changed or has been retained by the SAC will be placed on modified status. The Vice President/Dean of Academic Affairs or designee in collaboration with the Student Affairs Committee may modify a student’s academic or clinical program. Modification may take the form of increasing the time allowed to complete the curriculum, the sequence in which courses are taken, and/or by setting a different academic and/or clinical standard. The modified program will also contain the academic and/or clinical standard(s) that the student must meet in the modified program.

The SAC may set different academic and/or clinical standard(s) as part of a student’s performance review or dismissal hearing as well as recommend curriculum changes to the Vice President/Dean of Academic Affairs.
