Academic Probation

College of Veterinary Medicine

Academic probation represents notice that continued inadequate academic performance will result in a recommendation of dismissal. If a student on academic probation successfully completes a probationary quarter, his/her academic status reverts to academic warning. To return to good academic standing, a student must correct deficiencies and incur no further failures for one full quarter at full academic credit load following the completion of the correction of the deficiencies.

When a student is placed on academic probation, it is noted in the student's academic file. Subsequently, when a student is returned to good academic standing, this is also noted in the student's file. Academic probation is not noted on transcripts. Students on academic probation are ineligible to hold student organizational offices, or to progress to quarter 9 and clinical rotations until remediation is complete.

If a student on academic probation successfully completes a probationary quarter with repeated courses and earns grades of "C" or greater in all courses, the student's academic status reverts to academic warning. To return to good academic standing, a student must then finish one full quarter at full academic credit load in the CVM curriculum sequence with no grade lower than a "C". A student on probation is also formally assigned a faculty member to mentor them through the period of probation.
