Student’s Academic Standing

Academic standing in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences (BCHS) is determined by the student’s grade-point average (GPA) and performance in academic and clinical courses that are required by his or her program. All BCHS students are expected to maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.000 each semester to remain in good academic standing and to progress toward graduation. Students who do not maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.000 each semester will be placed on probation. Additionally, some programs require students to earn a grade of B (3.000) or better in each specified course. (See “Deficiency Information,” below.) Students must also earn a grade of B (3.000) or better in graduate courses taken at another institution that are subject to transfer credit.
