Academic Policies & Procedures


A student’s grade in each course will be determined by the combined results of examinations, classroom work, and clinical performance. The quality of the student’s work will be indicated by one of the following grades: A, B, C, D, F (Failure), S (Satisfactory), P (Pass), R (Deferred), and I (Incomplete). A failure requires repetition of the course; failure of a core course (i.e., one that carries a large number of credit hours) may require repetition of the entire academic year. Plus or minus grades may be assigned by faculty members at their discretion.

Students must earn at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average by the conclusion of their first four semesters in dental school (excluding summers) in order to continue their enrollment in the IUSD D.D.S. program.
