Dismissal from the School of Nursing for Academic Reasons

Students who earn a “C-” or below in a repeated course are not permitted to enroll in the course a third time; they are dismissed from the nursing program. Students who earn a “C-” or below in any two separate nursing courses are dismissed from the School of Nursing. Dismissal from the School of Nursing is an action that can be taken only by the Dean based on recommendation by the RAP committee. Students dismissed from the program due to unsatisfactory performance may appeal the decision to the University Dispute Resolution Committee. The UDRC review is limited to whether a School of Nursing or University policy, including the policy on Equal Opportunity, was violated. Students who are dismissed from the School of Nursing for academic performance may re-apply to the nursing program.
