Academic Regulation

Grades for all advanced education courses are assigned as A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, E and S or U. All advanced education students must receive a written evaluation of their overall progress each semester. This evaluation is based upon clinical performance and academic achievements compiled from the grades received in departmental and core curriculum course work. The University Registrar’s Office maintains students’ academic records, but it is the responsibility of the individual advanced education programs within the College of Dentistry to maintain files of individual student progress and written evaluation forms.

All students in the advanced education programs are expected to maintain a grade average of at least a B. If a student receives below a B average, the student will be given the opportunity to remediate. If the student can not obtain a B average after remediation, the student will be terminated from the program. The directors of each advanced education program will determine if a student in that program is not maintaining satisfactory progress, if the student should be placed on probation, and what the probation will involve. If the student does not satisfactorily complete the probation, the director may dismiss the student.

In order to have a system of effective campus governance, it is incumbent upon all members of the campus community to notify appropriate officials of any violations of regulations and to assist in their enforcement. All conduct regulations of the University are printed and made available to all students and are applicable to students enrolled in the College of Dentistry. All conduct regulations of the University are printed and made available to all students and are applicable upon publication in the Independent Florida AlligatorThe University CatalogUniversity of Florida Student Guide; or any reasonable means of notification.

This judicial process will follow established procedures for insuring fundamental fairness and an educational experience that facilitates the development of the individual and of the organization.
