Academic Probation

College of Veterinary Medicine

Academic probation represents notice that continued inadequate academic performance will result in a recommendation of dismissal.  A student on probation is formally assigned a faculty member by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs to mentor them through the period of probation.  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. 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 cannot return to good academic standing until all course failures are corrected.  Academic probation is not noted on the transcript. The student will seek assistance from the Office of Student Services for tutoring.  Students on academic probation are ineligible to hold student organizational offices or to progress to quarter nine and clinical rotations.
