Each course director sets the remediation policy for his or her course. The course remediation policy, as determined by the course director, is stated in the course syllabus.  

A failure in a didactic course that qualifies for remediation is listed as “IN” on the transcript until remediation is complete. Once the student has successfully remediated the course, the course grade is changed to a “C.” Students who do not successfully pass the remediation will fail the course (grade will be changed from an IN to a F) and will be referred to the Scholastic Achievement and Progressions Committee. Students must complete remediation and have the course grade changed from an IN to a passing grade to progress on to the next academic year.  

Students must complete didactic pre-requisites in order to be eligible to complete experiential learning. Students who are remediating didactic coursework will have their experiential learning rescheduled to the next available summer dependent upon site and preceptor availability. (Note: Students failing a PY1 course requiring remediation after spring semester of PY1 year will have their PY1 May/June or July/August immersion rotations rescheduled to the next summer.)

Students who fail a course and do not qualify for remediation must retake the course at the next offering. 

Reasonable efforts will be made to ensure a remediation course is available. However, due to potential extenuating circumstances influencing course delivery, remediation offerings cannot be guaranteed.  In this case, the student would re-take the course at the next available course offering. 

Students are allowed to remediate a total of two didactic courses within the curriculum. If a passing grade is not earned in a course after the two-course limit, a grade of F will be assigned and the course will have to be repeated/retaken in the next offering (i.e., students are not eligible for remediation after two remediations).
