The student who fails a nursing course must submit in writing a request for readmission. Requests are to be made to the Nursing Program Head within two (2) weeks after the final course grade is posted. The request must identify strategies to increase chances of success in the program.
Students who drop a course must also apply for readmission within two weeks of the last day of the semester. If a student drops a course after the eighth (8th) week of the semester with a failing grade, it will be considered a course failure.
The student's GPA must remain 2.5 or greater to be considered for readmission.
The Program Head will notify the student in writing by either letter or e-mail of the decision prior to the registration period for the applicable semester. If the student is denied readmission to the program and wishes to further address this issue, an appeal in writing must be submitted within ten days to the Dean of Health Professions.
If readmission is approved, criteria to be met prior to readmission will be outlined in the acceptance letter.
A student who is absent from the program for two or more consecutive semesters, but has successfully completed at least one nursing core course, and their GPA is 2.5 or better may also apply for readmission in writing to the Program Head. The Program Head will evaluate the student's request, and provide a decision in writing either by letter or e-mail. It is at the desecration of the Program Head to determine if criteria must be met before readmission is accepted.
