Student Catalog 2018-2019

Course Progression

To meet academic requirements, students may not make a grade of D in their program courses, including program-specific electives. (This policy excludes core courses, unless a grade of C or better is required as a prerequisite to other courses.) Students who make a D must repeat the course and obtain a final grade higher than D. The first grade will, however, still be recorded on the transcript and calculated into cumulative grade point average (GPA). A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 is required for graduation.

To fulfill the academic requirements of all School of Health Sciences and School of Nursing programs, a minimum grade of C is required for progress from specified courses to more advanced courses. In addition, a minimum grade of 75 is required for academic course progression in both the Registered Nursing and Licensed Practical Nursing programs. Students unable to meet the academic progression requirements for continuation in any cohorted Health Science or Nursing program will not be allowed to continue until the requirements are met. Upon completion of these requirements, the student will be allowed to continue when course sequence permits. Students unable to meet academic progression requirements within their second attempt in the Registered Nursing and Licensed Practical Nursing will not be allowed a third attempt to complete academic progression in the program. They may apply for consideration in other School of Health Science programs.
