Except for first-semester first-year students, students who fail to meet the pre-professional
academic standards delineated above will be placed on academic probation beginning
the following semester. Academic probation is not posted on students' transcripts.
Students may only be on Academic Probation one time during the pre-professional phase.
A second violation of pre-professional academic standing will result in a student's
permanent dismissal. If a student on academic probation completes the pre-professional
phase with no further academic difficulties and meets the minimum academic standards
to matriculate into the professional/accredited phase, the probationary status will
be removed, and the student may begin the professional/accredited phase with a clean
academic record. The exception to this policy occurs for all programs, except Athletic
Training and Health Management Systems (BS program), when the student is placed on
academic probation during their last pre-professional semester. In this case, the
student begins the professional/accredited phase on academic probation and may not
fall below the professional/accredited phase academic standards again at any other
time during the professional/accredited phase. Falling below the professional/accredited
standards in these cases will result in a student's permanent academic dismissal.
