Academic Policies & Procedures


Academic Dismissal

Students will be dismissed from the School of Public Health - Bloomington when, in the judgment of the Scholarship and Probation Committee, they have ceased to make academic progress toward their degrees. Students who fail to attain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 in any two semesters and who have a cumulative grade point average below 2.0 will be dismissed automatically. (Note that these students will have been placed on probation at some point before their dismissal.)

A student who has been dismissed will be prevented from enrolling for classes through the School of Public Health - Bloomington for at least one full semester. During this absence, a student may submit a petition to the committee for readmission.

Academic misconduct (cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, interference, violation of course rules, or facilitating academic dishonesty) may also result in a student's dismissal from the school. Consult the "Policy on Academic Misconduct" in the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct for information about these policies and procedures. (The policy is reproduced in the Enrollment and Student Academic Information Bulletin.)
