    Academic Requirements

    In addition to the requirements outlined in the Academic Rules, the following requirements apply to students matriculated in the Nursing program:

    A. Matriculated Status 

    Because of the limited enrollment capacity of the Nursing program, a matriculated Nursing student in good academic standing who discontinues enrollment for reasons other than graduation for two or more consecutive terms (summer and winter sessions excluded) will be placed on inactive status. Readmission to the program is required and will be considered by the Nursing department.

    B. Withdrawals 

    A student will not be permitted to withdraw from a Nursing theory course after a failing grade has been earned. A student who has demonstrated a failing grade in a NUR clinical course during clinical week #3 or after will not be allowed to withdraw from that clinical course.

    C. Grading 

    1. Grading System
      The quality point system used to determine academic standing for students in the Nursing program is as follows:
      Exceeds Mastery………………………………………….EM = 4.0
      Mastery +………………………………………………….M+ = 3.5
      Mastery…………………………………………………….M  = 3.0
      Mastery - …………………………………………………..M- = 1.0
      Non Mastery……………………………………………….NM = 0.0
      The grade of IP (In Progress) does not carry quality points.
    2. Repeated Courses
      A student is allowed to repeat a course with NUR prefix only once.
      Students who fail to receive M or better for a repeated NUR course will lose matriculation in the program.

    D. Academic Standing 

    1. Loss of Matriculation:
      A student in Nursing who earns a failing grade in any two clinical courses will lose matriculation.
    2. Reinstatement in Same Curriculum:
      Contact the Nursing department for specific guidelines.

    E. Degree Requirements 

    Students matriculated in Nursing must achieve a minimal grade of M in all NUR courses and a minimum grade of C in all other required courses, except BIO 171, 172, and 205 for which a minimum of C+ is required.

    Note: When a grade of C is required, a grade of C- is considered below minimum standards; when a grade of C+ is required, a grade of C is considered below minimum standards.
