Course Failure Policy

College of Dental Medicine-Arizona

The faculty provides didactic programs and measures students' performance in subject areas deemed necessary to become dental practitioners. Students who do not demonstrate minimum competencies assume the obligation and responsibility to make up academic failures. D-1 students must successfully pass all failed courses before they can be promoted to the second year. Likewise, D-2 students can begin the clinic and be promoted to the third year only if they pass all requirements of the preclinical curriculum, and National Boards Part I. D-3 and D-4 students must remediate any failed courses within the first month of the subsequent quarter.
