Resolution of F Grade

The resolution of an “F” grade depends on the outcome of the SAC dismissal hearing.  If a student is allowed to continue, the student will be placed on modified status.  Before further advancement in the clinical program is allowed, the student will have to satisfactorily complete a course of remediation and achieve a grade of “P” or above in the repeated clinical course.  Upon completion of the remedial course work and repeated clinical course, the student will be reviewed by the SAC and further action will be taken by the SAC if necessary.
