Policy 560.10


Qualitative Standards: Satisfactory Academic Progress


Policy Statement

  1. The qualitative standards for academic progress are detailed in the Review of Academic Performance and Review of Professional Performance policies, and each student's progress is reviewed at least once each academic year by the Committee on Advancement.
  2. Students must pass each segment of the curriculum to the satisfaction of the Committee on Advancement before advancing to the next segment, and must complete all requirements of the curriculum to the satisfaction of the Committee in order to graduate. Students must maintain academic standing consistent with the Larner College of Medicine's graduation requirements. Students are considered to have academic standing consistent with the College's graduation requirements if they are progressing through the curriculum to the satisfaction of the Committee on Advancement.
  3. As outlined in the Review of Academic and Professional Performance Policies, students who fail any course, clerkship, or advanced rotation may, with the permission of the Committee on Advancement, make arrangements to remove those deficiencies or repeat the courses, clerkships, or advanced rotations. A student removing deficiencies or repeating the work of Foundations or one or more clerkships or advanced rotations with the approval of the Committee on Advancement is considered to have an academic standing consistent with the College's standards for graduation and, therefore, to be making Satisfactory Academic Progress, provided s/he continues to meet the Quantitative Standards.
  4. Students who fail to meet the qualitative standards are dismissed from the Larner College of Medicine.
