Academic Probation and Dismissal

Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better in each semester of the professional phase. If a student is identified to be in academic “danger” at the mid-point of a course, a timely verbal as well as written notification will be made to the student via the student’s university-issued email by the faculty member teaching the course and/or clinical instructor and the DPT program Director will also be notified of potential academic problems. The student will then be given guidance towards study skills and remediation. A student will be placed on Academic Probation if a 3.0 GPA is not achieved; failure to achieve a 3.0 in two consecutive semesters may result in the dismissal of the student from the DPT Program.
