Minimum Academic Requirements

College of Veterinary Medicine

Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or greater in their first year and must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or greater to proceed to the clinical component of the program. Students who fail a course may be recommended for dismissal, may be placed in an extended study program, or may be placed on academic probation. If not dismissed, students are required to retake the course and must earn a C or better in order to proceed in the program. If the course is not given until the subsequent year, the student may be placed on academic leave until it is offered again. Two failed courses by a student in a single quarter will result in a recommendation of dismissal of the student.  (See charts below for further elaboration on results of unsatisfactory academic performance.)
