Student Academic Review Committees

College of Health Sciences

The Student Academic Review Committee of each program/school is appointed annually by the University Faculty Senate with the recommendation of the Program/School Director. Membership consists of three or more program/school faculty members and the Program/School Director (or his/her designee) who is the chair of this committee. The Dean of Students and the CHS Dean or his/her designee are ex-officio members without vote.

At the end of each quarter, this committee reviews and acts upon the academic progress of each student enrolled in the program. If satisfactory, the committee recommends progression of the student to the next quarter. If unsatisfactory, the committee recommends whether a student is placed on academic warning, academic probation, administrative probation, academic leave of absence, or is dismissed. These recommendations are forwarded to the student, the chair of the CHS Student Promotion and Graduation Committee, and the CHS Dean. Following notification, a student may appeal the recommendation to the CHS Student Promotion and Graduation Committee. The CHS Student Promotion and Graduation Committee will review the student's appeal and make a recommendation to the CHS Dean. The CHS Dean is responsible for reviewing all recommendations for consistency with stated College academic policies and practices. The Dean makes the final decision on the action to be taken.

The Student Academic Review Committee also recommends for graduation students who have satisfactorily completed all degree requirements specified by their respective program/school. These recommendations are forwarded to the CHS Student Promotion and Graduation Committee for review. Minutes of each meeting must be filed with the appropriate Program/School Director and the CHS Dean.
