Academic Achievement Policy

If a student is experiencing academic difficulties, the Bower School of Population Health offers the student an opportunity to participate in the Academic Achievement Program at UMMC.

During the first year of the program, a student who earns a grade of “C” or below on any exam, may be referred to their program director for inclusion in the Academic Achievement Program.  

Once the student has met the criteria to be enrolled in the Academic Achievement Program, the student must fulfill the following requirements:

  • Within two weeks of receiving notification from the dean for Academic Affairs, the student must make an appointment with the Office of Academic Support to discuss the appropriate academic assistance that is available to students, both directly and on a referral basis.
  • In some cases, the student may be evaluated by Student/Employee Health.
  • After the initial meeting with an academic counselor, students will plan with their Program Director the conditions for continuation as indicated in their program’s Academic Achievement Program.
