Policy on Dismissal

The Student Advancement Committee or Student Disciplinary Committee may recommend a student for dismissal at any time. The chair of the committee must convey, in writing, the committee’s recommendation of dismissal to the vice dean, who will render a decision and notify the student.

Any student who is dismissed will be immediately removed from classes and/or clinical duties. A student who is dismissed may also be restricted from any academic facility or institutional event. Violations of the prohibitions set forth by the School will be taken into account during any subsequent appeal.

Dismissal is noted on the student’s academic transcript. Any course that has not received a final grade at the time of dismissal will receive a designation of Fail (F) on the transcript.

A student has the right to appeal the decision of the vice dean with regard to a committee’s recommendation for dismissal.
