Perfusion Technology: Academic Policies

The Department of Perfusion Technology requires full time enrollment beginning with the fall quarter of the junior year and continuing through the spring quarter of the senior year, a total of seven consecutive quarters of classroom work and clinical experience.

Academic Progression
High academic performance in required course is expected. Only grades of A, B, or C may fulfill degree requirements in all required courses. Students will be considered to be in good standing unless placed on academic probation. Academic probation is assigned to any undergraduate student who earns a quarterly grade point average (GPA) below 2.5 (A=4.0) or for graduate students who earn a quarterly GPA below 3.0 (A=4.0). Students placed on probation have two quarters in which to regain the status of good standing. Failure to do so will result in dismissal from the University. As most courses are offered only once each year, students who receive a grade of F may have to defer enrollment until the course is offered again. A grade of F in a course that is a prerequisite to another required course may also prevent a student from continuing to progress in the normal sequence. The Department's Advisory Committee must approve any exception to these policies.
