Policies and Procedures

Programmatic Remediation

For students experiencing academic difficulty, the use of remediation actions prior to the initiation of probation or dismissal will be enacted in collaboration with program leadership. The Program Director may meet with you and/or the faculty member to discuss the difficulty and explore options to assist you. Options may include writing center referrals, tutors, other academic support services, and referrals to the University Counseling Center. A remediation letter will be generated documenting the plan. A student whose academic performance results in a continuation of academic probation is subject to dismissal from the University at the end of the semester. Program leadership will meet virtually, at the end of each semester to review students' overall progress and planning, focusing on academic progress as well as strategies to provide students with the necessary support and guidance.

Students requiring remediation in fieldwork rotations could have large deficits in one area or small deficits in multiple areas. Students will be notified of the need for remediation and a requirement to meet with the Program Director to discuss an appropriate remediation strategy, inclusive but not limited to assignments, projects, extra cases during the next rotation, repetition of the rotation at a different location, etc. after the final evaluation is posted in CORE ELMS. A remediation letter, generated during a discussion between the student and the Program Director, will document the plan specifics and be provided. Students who receive a U (unsatisfactory) for any rotation must redo the rotation. The recording of a U by the registrar’s office on the student transcript can later be replaced with the S grade, provided all work has been completed; however, remediation may delay the anticipated graduation date.
