Progression (Policy AA-2)

Students will not be permitted to progress to a higher level of course work in the major area of study until successfully completing the prerequisite courses. Any exceptions to this rule must have the approval of the Academic Program Director. Students who enroll in courses without successfully completing the prerequisite course(s) may be administratively withdrawn without prior notice.

Undergraduate students must maintain a 2.00 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) for successful completion of the program of study. A student who fails to maintain a 2.0 CPGA in any given semester will be placed on academic probation.

Graduate students must maintain a 3.0 CGPA for successful completion of the program of study. A student who fails to maintain a 3.0 CGPA in any given semester will be placed on academic probation.

Any undergraduate student may remove a “D” or “F” grade and graduate students may remove a “C”, “D” or “F” grade from the CGPA by repeating the course. Both courses will permanently remain on the academic record/transcript, but only the higher grade (or most recent for duplicate grades) will be used in calculating the CGPA.

Procedure:

Undergraduate Certificate Programs and Associate of Science Degree Programs with exception of Health Information Technology

Students enrolled in Certificate, and Associate of Science Degree programs must maintain a grade of “C-“ or higher in each major, support and core courses. The academic program director in consultation with faculty and administration will determine which of the following actions will occur when a student receives a “D,” “F,” or “NP” “WP”, “WF”, “W” grade in a major, support or core course(s):

  1. Dismissal from the program with the option to reapply the following year. Students would be expected to meet current admission requirements. There would be no guarantee of readmission.
  2. Repeat the course the next semester it is offered at the discretion of the program director. Additional conditions may be required of the student.

Any student returning to a program must meet with the program director and may be required to complete an assessment and/or test. A fee may be charged to the student for the assessment and testing process. Any student who fails to pass an assessment may be required to repeat major courses previously taken.

A student who receives a non-passing grade in a major, support or core course after being readmitted or reenrolled will be academically dismissed from the program. Any student who is dismissed from the Radiography program and is dually enrolled in the Medical Imaging program will be dismissed from both academic programs.

Associate of Science in Health Information Technology (HIT), Bachelor of Science & Post Baccalaureate Degree Programs

Students enrolled in Associate of Science in HIT, Bachelor of Science and Post Baccalaureate degree programs must maintain a grade of “C-“ or higher in each major, support and core course(s). Failing grades include “WF”, “D,” “F,” or “NP”. Failed courses in the major, support or core course(s) must be repeated to achieve a passing grade.

Failed courses in the major, support or core course(s) must be repeated to achieve a passing grade (WP,WF or W are not considered a passing grade). A major support or core course may not be repeated more than one time. A student who fails a major, support or core course more than once will be dismissed from the program. Students who receive a "D" or "F" in a total of two courses in the major, support or core course(s) will be dismissed from the program.

  • Any student who is dismissed from the Radiography program and is dually enrolled in the Medical Imaging program will be dismissed from both academic programs.
  • A Medical Imaging major elective course can only be repeated once. A student who fails the same MI major elective course twice will be dismissed from the program.

A student may Withdraw Fail (WF) from any major, support or core course. After receiving a Withdraw Fail (WF) in a major, support or core course, the student must repeat the course for a grade.

A student may Withdraw Fail (WF) from only two major, support or core courses during his/her current program of study. A Withdraw Fail (WF) from a third major, support or core course will result in dismissal from the Undergraduate program.

Graduate Degree Programs

Graduate students, with the exception of Nurse Anesthesia students, must repeat any course they fail (grade below B-), but they are NOT allowed to repeat a course more than one time. Graduate students who receive a grade of “C," "D," "F," or "NP" in a total of two courses will be dismissed from the program.

Nurse Anesthesia students who fail a course will not progress with their cohort. They must reapply to the program for the following year, and if they are accepted, may repeat the failed course.

A student may Withdraw Fail (WF) from any major course. After receiving a Withdraw Fail (WF) in a major course, the student must repeat the course for a grade.

A student may Withdraw Fail (WF) from only two major courses during his/her current program of study. A Withdraw Fail (WF) from a third major course will result in dismissal from the Graduate program.
