The following conditions or circumstances may provide sufficient cause for dismissal of a student from the Graduate School. If a student
- who has been placed on academic probation fails to resolve his or her academic deficiencies in the manner and in the time prescribed in here or by the Dean; or,
- fails any course; or,
- displays substantial deficiencies in his/her ability to perform effectively in a laboratory environment (as determined by one or more GSBS faculty members); or
- fails the Ph.D. candidacy examination.
Normally, the ASC will consider any circumstances in which it appears there is cause for dismissal of a student. It will gather evidence from the student, the student's Committee, and any other appropriate individuals. On the basis of the evidence available to it and in light of the standards and guidelines set forth in this Manual, the ASC will reach a decision concerning dismissal of the student. The student may elect to appeal the decision of the ASC within ten days of receipt of the dismissal letter. This appeal is made directly to the Dean of the Graduate School. The Dean will consider the evidence and the decision of the ASC and render a final decision on the appeal.
POLICY FOR READMISSION OF STUDENTS DISMISSED FOR UNSATISFACTORY PROGRESS
Any student who withdraws from GSBS or is asked to leave because of unsatisfactory progress must wait one year before applying for readmission. Upon re-application, students are evaluated by the GSBS Admissions Committee on a case-by-case basis. Those who appear to have the potential to complete the degree program successfully are recommended for admission to the Dean. The Dean makes the final decision concerning readmission.
