Anatomy and Cell Biology: Academic Policies

The Division is bound by academic policies of the University and The Graduate College.

Assessment of Progress
The student's progress will be assessed continuously based upon performance in the courses taken and upon evaluations by the Division of Anatomy and Cell Biology's Graduate Advisory Committee. Good academic standing necessary for graduation requires maintenance of a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0. Students who fail to earn at least B grades in courses within the division, or whose overall GPA falls below 3.0 are placed on probationary status for review of their progress by the Graduate Advisory Committee. Pending this review, any student on probation, may be recommended for a remedial action, or for dismissal from the program. An outline of these specific academic policies and grievance mechanisms is accessible on the departmental web site; a printed version may be obtained from the Graduate Program Director.
