Academic Progression

A grade of B or better is required in all Exercise Physiology courses.  A letter grade of C, D, F or U in an Exercise Physiology course results in the student being placed on academic probation within the program until the student is able to repeat the course and progress to subsequent courses for which the failed course is a prerequisite.  When repeating an Exercise Physiology course a student may be required to successfully complete ancillary learning experiences or clinical competencies/practicums that validate theoretical knowledge.  If a student is unable to take futher courses in the next occuring semester as a result of this policy, the student is placed on academic suspension and repeats the course during the next appropriate semester.  A course may be repeated only one time.  A student receiving a C, D, F or U in the same Exercise Physiology course twice or in two Exercise Physiology courses is dismissed from the program.

A student must obtain a GPA of 3.00 or better each semester.  If a student earns a semester grade point average between 2.00 – 2.99, he/she is placed on academic probation.  To be removed from academic probation the student must earn a GPA of 3.00 or better in the following semester.  If a clinical internship course is scheduled during the next semester, the student must earn a satisfactory (S) grade in the clinical internship course and a GPA of 3.00 or better in the semester following the clinical internship to be removed from academic probation. 

If a student was placed on academic probation once and a second violation of the academic progression policy, either a grade of C, D, or F, in a course or a GPA below a 3.00 the student will be dismissed from the program. Students who cancel or withdraw from the Master of Science in Exercise Physiology Program forfeit their position in the program.  Students wishing to re-enter the graduate program after cancelling or withdrawing must go through the full re-application process.

Since transportation to and from clinical and practicum sites is the student's responsibility, a vehicle is required for each student.
