CHS Student Promotion and Graduation Committee

College of Health Sciences

This committee is appointed annually by the University Faculty Senate. Members include the CHS Program/School Directors, two faculty members from each program/school within CHS and four faculty members from the basic science departments (2 representatives from each campus). The Dean of Students and the CHS Dean or his/her designee are ex-officio members without vote. The CHS Dean appoints the co-chairs, one from each campus, of this committee. Each campus has a subcommittee of at least three members of the CHS Student Promotion and Graduation Committee and is chaired by the co-chair from each respective campus.

At the end of each academic year, each subcommittee reviews the recommendations from the individual Student Academic Review Committees and assesses the academic and professional progress and performance of each student. If satisfactory, the committee recommends promotion of the student. In addition, the subcommittees meet each spring and fall, or as needed, to recommend for graduation all students who have satisfactorily completed all degree requirements specified by their program/school. The subcommittee's recommendations are forwarded to the CHS Dean and the University Faculty Senate for approval. These campus-based subcommittees also review student appeals of Student Academic Review Committee recommendations from their respective campus. The co-chairpersons of the committee are responsible for submitting minutes of each meeting to the CHS Dean.
