A student may appeal academic suspension/dismissal by submitting a letter (or email) of appeal to the Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA) within ten (10) business days from the date the student learned or reasonably should have learned of his or her suspension or dismissal from the College. Evidence of any extenuating circumstances should be included. If the VPAA approves, the suspension may be overturned for one term. The decision of the Vice President for Academic Affairs is final.
Because of the sequential nature of courses in certain programs (e.g. Practical Nursing, Cosmetology), a student will not be allowed to continue in the assigned cohort if a final grade of "D" or "F" is earned in any program course.
Allied Health Programs
All students enrolled in allied health programs will have their clinical program evaluated orally and in writing by their instructors with input from others responsible for their learning experiences. Unsatisfactory evaluations may be considered grounds for dismissal from the program. (See individual program evaluation requirements.)
