Remediation for Failing Grades PDFDownload 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.

  • Year one of the four-year program, or year two of the five-year program, will begin remediation following the summer semester.
  • All other class years will begin remediation following the spring semester.

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.
