College of Dental Medicine-Arizona
Students who fail three or more courses in a single academic year or students who fail two or more courses in a single quarter usually receive a recommendation for dismissal.
Matriculation and participation in dental school is a privilege, not a right. Therefore, a student can be dismissed for the following reasons:
- failure to achieve minimum academic standards (preclinical or clinical promotions committees)
- failure to exhibit the personal qualifications and ethical standards necessary to the practice of dentistry (student judicial process)
- violation of Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine-Arizona rules and regulations that are grounds for dismissal (student and administrative judicial process).
NOTE: Students will be assessed full tuition for any additional years.
