College of Health and Human Services
Policies & Procedures
Upon the recommendation of the faculty in the student's program, a student may be dismissed from the College of Health and Human Services. Dismissal is based on the failure to meet academic or professional standards. The student will be informed of the dismissal in writing by the dean of the College of Health and Human Services or the dean's representative.
A student in the College of Health and Human Services may be dismissed from the school when, in the judgment of the faculty, the student has ceased to make satisfactory progress toward a degree. When an undergraduate student fails to attain a C (2.0) grade point average in any two consecutive academic sessions, has a cumulative grade point average below C (2.0) for two consecutive sessions, or fails to earn higher than a D (1.0) grade point average in any one semester or has a pattern of withdrawal from professional courses, the student is automatically considered to be making unsatisfactory progress toward a degree and is thereby eligible for dismissal.
In addition, a student who fails to meet program-specific academic requirements is considered not to be making satisfactory academic progress toward a degree and may be dismissed. At the time of initial enrollment, each student receives a copy of the program-specific academic requirements.
A student failing to meet the standards of professional and personal conduct may also be recommended for dismissal.
