Last Update:

June 30, 2018


Good academic standing should be clearly defined and communicated to students, faculty and staff because it is a standing requirement for application to and/or continuation of many scholarships, internships, externships, research opportunities, school-sponsored travel and class leadership positions.

Scope and Applicability:

All students enrolled in the School of Medicine

Standard Practice Guideline:

Good academic standing is the designation given when a student has either received Pass, Pass with Remediation, High Pass, or Honors in all coursework. Any unremediated Fail on a student record in any academic year or being placed on Probation or Suspension by the SPRC will remove a student from good academic standing. 


Students must request a verification of Good Academic Standing from the Director of School of Medicine Records and Registration.
