ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE POLICY

Students must earn grades of C (2.0) or higher in all nursing and specified required support courses. The nursing department's academic excellence policy states that a student who receives two grades below C (2.0) in either nursing or specified support courses will be automatically dismissed from the program or not considered for pre-nursing admission.

The original grade below C (2.0) counts in relation to this policy even if the course has been repeated for a satisfactory grade.
