Dismissal

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:

  1. failure to achieve minimum academic standards (preclinical or clinical promotions committees)
  2. failure to exhibit the personal qualifications and ethical standards necessary to the practice of dentistry (student judicial process)
  3. 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.
