Academic Policies & Procedures
Leave of Absence Policy
- No student may be granted a leave of absence solely because of poor academic performance.
- All student leaves, as well as the conditions for reinstatement following such leaves, must be approved by the dean of the dental school (or the dean’s designee).
- Written certification shall be required of the appropriate person or agency confirming the need for a leave of absence and for the date concluding a leave of absence.
Similar academic standards apply to dental hygiene and dental assisting students.
