Course Warning Policy

In addition to action based on academic standing, faculty may place a student on course warning at any time. The purpose of initiating course warning status is to inform the student of their status and to clarify the consequences of the warning. Failure to demonstrate satisfactory improvement will result in failure of the course and may result in dismissal from the College. A student demonstrating unacceptable behavior (unprofessional, unsatisfactory, or patterns of unsuccessful behavior) will be informed in writing of their status and will be placed on course warning. The warning status may be removed if behavior improves sufficiently to indicate satisfactory conduct and consistency in meeting the expectations of the course.

Courses in a Major
A student functioning below a 75% average in a theory course or theory component of a course in the declared major at midterm will usually be informed in writing of their status by the registrar. A student demonstrating unacceptable behavior (unprofessional, unsatisfactory) will usually be informed in writing of their status and will be placed on course warning by course instructors, at any time in the course. Warning status may be removed if behavior improves sufficiently to indicate satisfactory conduct and consistency in meeting the expectations of the course.

A student functioning at an unsatisfactory level in the clinical portion of a course, will usually be informed in writing of their status and usually will be placed on course warning status at that time by the course faculty. Warning status may be removed if course performance improves sufficiently to indicate satisfactory performance and consistency in meeting the objectives.
