At the discretion of the Associate Dean, Academic, supplemental privileges may be granted to a student who fails a course (“F”) or who has received a “D” or “D+”.
The student must make application in writing to be offered supplemental examination to the Associate Dean, Academic within 7 days of the notification of final grade. The Associate Dean, Academic, upon receiving written application from a student, and after consulting with the instructor, the Continuation of Study Committee, if appropriate, and reviewing the student’s academic performance since last review, will determine whether a supplemental privilege should be granted.
Any student granted a supplemental privilege must meet with the Associate Dean, Academic who will inform the student of resources available that might help the student with his/her academic difficulties.
A student may be granted supplemental privileges only once for a particular course.
Students may only be granted a maximum of two supplemental examinations in the courses taken in one year.
Students may only be granted a maximum of four supplemental examinations over the whole program.
Successful completion of a supplemental exam will not result in a grade higher than “C-“ being awarded.
If a student completes the supplemental course and receives a grade lower than a D, the previously achieved D will stand.
A grade of at least “C-” on the supplemental examination is required to obtain credit for a failed (“F”) course and be considered to have passed.
