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-Illinois rules and regulations that are grounds for dismissal (student and administrative judicial process).

Please Note: Students will be assessed tuition for additional coursework.
