Students are required to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward a degree at all times. This has four basic components – (1) a grade point average (GPA) that meets or exceeds the defined graduation standard of 3.0, (2) satisfactory completion of all clinical education requirements, (3) adherence to the Student Code of Academic Integrity and Professionalism in all settings (classroom, clinic, practicum sites, offices, & laboratories) and (4) timely fulfillment of degree requirements. A student who meets all components is said to be in Good Academic Standing. Students must be in good academic standing to continue their studies and receive a degree.
A Satisfactory Grade Point Average for good academic standing is a B average as represented by an overall GPA of 3.00 or above. To receive a degree, students must have an overall GPA and a GPA in core, program required and elective courses that meets or exceeds the required minimum level of 3.00.
Satisfactory completion of clinical education requirements requires students to achieve a passing grade or a GPA of 3.00 or above, depending on their program, in all clinical education requirements.
Adherence to professional conduct standards requires students to comply with the Student Code of Academic Integrity and Professionalism and the applicable Professional Code of Ethics and/or Scope of Practice.
