Performance Review, Probationary Status and Dismissal
The academic standing of each student registered in the Cumming School of Medicine will be reviewed annually following the Winter Term as per the GPA requirements table.
2.50 or above: Satisfactory standing
1.70 – 2.49: Continuation in BCR on probation
0.00 – 1.69: Required to withdraw from the school
The academic standing of students registered in the Faculty will be reviewed after each Winter Term provided that they have completed at least 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) at the University of Calgary since their previous review. Students who have not completed 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) since the previous review will retain their existing status until the next subsequent review. All University of Calgary credit courses that have been completed since the previous review are used for the purpose of academic review. Students placed on academic probation or required to withdraw as a result of the academic performance review will be so advised in writing.
University regulations permit students a maximum of one probationary period while registered as an undergraduate student. Students who are on academic probation will have to maintain a GPA of at least 2.50 in each subsequent year in order to continue in the BCR program. Students who are Required to Withdraw may be able to enter another program.
Notwithstanding the specific regulations pertaining to Student Standing, students’ academic standing may be reviewed at any time and those with generally poor academic records may be placed or continued on academic probation or required to withdraw at the discretion of the Dean (or delegate).
