7.4 Promotion Denied

Promotion Denied means Clear Promotion is not achieved at the end of the Academic year. A student with Promotion Denied status will normally be required to withdraw from the School. A student will be deemed to be in Promotion Denied status when any of the following criteria are met:

  1. A student has obtained less than a 65% weighted average in the Academic year or has obtained less than 50% in any course or has received a grade of FAL (fail) in any course within the Academic year. A weighted average will be based on credit hours in the program of study as outlined in Table 1 Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.), Full-Time Program.

  2. A student has not maintained the professional and ethical behaviour consistent with the Student Code of Conduct.

Notwithstanding the above, the School of Pharmacy may offer the student the option to repeat an Academic year on the grounds of academic difficulties. This may be offered only once during the student's program. This restriction may be waived if it has been demonstrated that the student's academic performance has been adversely affected by factors duly authenticated and acceptable to the Committee on Undergraduate Studies of the School of Pharmacy.
