School Dismissal Policy

All students have a responsibility both to maintain the integrity of the School and to meet the highest standards of personal and professional conduct. The Academic Vice President, if requested by an individual student in potential difficulty, will meet with that student to clarify the nature of the problem and to seek appropriate solutions. A dismissal from the School is a final decision of the School, and not subject to grievance procedures.

The School reserves the right to suspend, place on probation, or dismiss any student whose academic performance, ethical standards, class absence, financial delinquency, mental health, or personal conduct is significantly detrimental to the educational goals and purposes of the School. Transcript entries for suspended or dismissed students show no notation of the suspension/dismissal, and courses in progress at the time show a grade of “W” (Withdraw).
