PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE COLLEGE OF PHARMACY CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2004-2006



On page 498, under the heading ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES in the College of Pharmacy chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2002-2004, make the following change:


ACADEMIC PROBATION AND DISMISSAL

A student is placed on academic probation in the College of Pharmacy if he or she receives a grade of D or F in any required pharmacy course. If the grade received is an F, the student must repeat the course and may not progress to courses for which it is a prerequisite until he or she has earned a grade of at least C in the failed course. If the initial grade received is a D, the student may progress to courses for which the course is a prerequisite. The student may choose to repeat a course in which he or she received a D, if the course does not conflict with other courses the student would normally take in the same semester; however, this choice affects the student’s release from academic probation as described in the following section.

If the student receives more than two incompletes in required pharmacy courses, regardless of the grades ultimately awarded, he or she is subject to review by the Academic Performance Committee; the committee may choose to place the student on academic probation.

A student is subject to dismissal from the college if he or she receives more than one D or F in required pharmacy courses in one semester. The student is also subject to dismissal if he or she receives a second D or F while on academic probation or conditional academic probation.

RELEASE FROM ACADEMIC PROBATION

After receiving a grade of F. The student must repeat the course and earn a grade of at least C before taking courses for which the failed course is a prerequisite. In the semester or summer session in which he or she repeats the course, the student must complete a full academic load, including [and must complete] at least [six] five hours in required pharmacy [coursework] courses and/or other coursework prescribed by the academic adviser. A full academic load is defined as twelve hours in a long-session semester and six hours in the summer. The new grade replaces the grade of F when the student’s pharmacy grade point average is calculated. If the new grade is C or better, the student is released from academic probation if and only if he or she has earned no further grades of D or F while on academic probation or conditional academic probation. If the student does not earn a grade of at least C upon repeating the course, he or she is subject to academic dismissal.

{No further changes}
