Academic Policies

School of Nursing Dean's List

Full-time undergraduate students in the School of Nursing will be placed on the School of Nursing Dean's List each semester that they receive a GPA of 3.5 or above. Part-time students will be honored after they have had consecutive fall and spring semesters (during the same academic year) on a part-time basis and they have accumulated 12 credit hours or more.

Satisfactory/Fail Grades

Satisfactory/Fail (S/F) grades are used by the School of Nursing for grading undergraduate clinical nursing courses. Grades are recorded as S or F. Students must demonstrate a satisfactory level of clinical competence and skill to receive a satisfactory grade in these courses. Satisfactory performance standards are stated in each course syllabus, and faculty evaluate the quality of student clinical performance by these standards. An S indicates a grade of A, B, or C (2.0 or higher). Inability to receive a grade of S constitutes failure.

Students cannot progress in their nursing program until this deficiency is corrected.

Pass/Fail Option

This option is offered to any student in good standing wishing to enroll in an elective course that is not considered a prerequisite to or part of the nursing curriculum. A maximum of 6 nonnursing elective credit hours taken under this option may be applied to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.
