Students who accumulate three failures over more than a single academic year, or two failures in a single quarter, may be recommended for an academic leave of absence. They are required to retake failed courses during the regular academic year and are not eligible for summer remediation courses either at CDMA or at any other dental school. The grade for a failed course, repeated at an outside institution or at Midwestern University and passed, is recorded as a grade of "C". The previous "F" course grade remains on the official transcript but does not calculate into the overall Grade Point Average.
NOTE: Students will be assessed tuition and related fees for any additional years.
