Standards for Maintaining Satisfactory Progress

MS in Health Care Delivery Leadership students maintain satisfactory progress by:

  • Passing all courses in order to graduate

  • Attending and completing all in-person seminars

  • Actively participating in all online elements, including but not limited to discussion boards, blogs, synchronous sessions, and all course assignments

  • Actively engaging with peer learners and faculty in each course

  • Accessing all course resources, including but not limited to recorded lectures, assigned readings, multi-media elements, and case studies or simulations

  • Maintaining satisfactory progress on all milestones for the Capstone project

Students who do not meet the criteria for Good Standing may be placed on probation by the Program Director, Dean of the Graduate School, or their appointed representatives: including the Academic Advisory Committee and the Academic Program Office. Once a student is placed on academic probation, academic progress must be made within two terms. Dismissal is the likely consequence if performance continues to be unsatisfactory. Students on probation are considered enrolled.

Students are required to maintain a 3.0 Grade Point Average (GPA). Students who fall below a GPA of 3.0 will be placed on academic probation. Anytime a student’s GPA falls below 3.0, the Program Faculty Director will work with the student and create a remediation plan.

The Faculty Director in discretionary consultation with program or school-wide academic committee reviews the progress of each student on probation. If the GPA has not improved in the subsequent term, the student will continue to meet the Faculty Director revising the remediation plan, as needed. If the student’s GPA has not reached 3.0 within two terms having been placed on probation, the student may be dismissed from the program
