In recognition of the need to maintain acceptable standards for professional curriculum performance, as well as academic achievement, the following academic progression requirements shall apply to all students enrolled in the Molecular Diagnostics programs.
In order to progress in the program, a student shall maintain a 2.50 GPA and pass all professional sequence courses with a C or better.
You must complete professional phase within 5 years of program entry.
If a student earns less than a C in any CLLS or DMOL course, he/she will be required to repeat that course when there is a seat available. A student in good academic standing has priority over a student who must repeat the course.
A student may repeat a maximum of 3 credits of CLLS and DMOL courses. Earning less than a C in courses totaling 4 or more credits will result in a student being denied from progressing further in the DMOL program.
Failing to earn a C or better in the same course after two (2) attempts will result in a student being denied from progressing further in the DMOL program. An attempt is defined as enrollment in the course for one week or longer.
Students in the DMOL program must complete the professional phase within 5 years of beginning. If a student cannot complete the program within the stipulated time, he/she will be required to reapply to the professional phase of the program.
No student will be allowed to enter the clinical experience or graduate from the program with less than a 2.50 cumulative grade point average, or with a grade of less than a C in any of the required professional courses.
You must meet with your academic advisor at least once per semester to discuss progress toward graduation. You will receive a progress report at the beginning of each semester. This report will list your current GPA, GPA in CLLS/DMOL courses, and any deficiencies in progress, such as being behind schedule in taking general education courses, or not having a prerequisite for a course you will need soon.
