Repeating an Academic Year

The Student Academic Progress Committee may mandate that a student repeat an academic year to correct academic deficiencies.

A student given the opportunity to repeat an academic year must retake and successfully complete the requirements for all courses failed in the previous academic year. Additional courses and activities for the student will be determined in consultation with the Associate Dean for Student Affairs. The repeated academic year will be designed to provide the student with the best preparation possible for improved academic performance in subsequent years.

All course work during a repeated academic year must be completed successfully by the end of each semester. Failure of coursework during a repeated academic year is grounds for dismissal from the School of Medicine.

A student cannot repeat more than one academic year, except under exceptional circumstances and with the approval of the SAPC.
