Action whereby a student will be dismissed from the Master of Healthcare Administration program due to failure to adhere to academic and program requirements.
- A student has a cumulative GPA of less than 3.00 at the end of any quarter and then fails to raise his/her cumulative GPA to a 3.00 or higher at the end of the next quarter;
- A student’s cumulative GPA falls below 3.00 for a second time;
- A student’s professional conduct violates the performance standards set forth in the South College Academic Honor Code, the South College Standards of Student Conduct, or for unprofessional behavior or criminal activity.
South College reserves the right to dismiss at any time a student who, in its judgment, is undesirable and whose continued enrollment is detrimental to him/herself or his/her fellow students or whose presence is disruptive to the learning environment, or the orderly operation of the College.
Following dismissal, a student may appeal the dismissal by providing the Dean of the School of Business & Technology a written letter of appeal. The appeal will be considered by the associated School of Business Technology and the Dean. If the appeal is approved, the student will be allowed to return to the program for the designed period in a probationary status. All stipulations of the approved appeal must be met in order for the student to be returned to Good Standing. Failure to meet appeal stipulations will result in program dismissal.
