Student progress in medical school

Students are expected to adhere to a schedule that will result in graduation 4 years after matriculation. Requests for exception to this 4-year rule require approval by the Committee on Student Promotions. Failure to adhere to the 4-year timetable without written approval from the Committee on Student Promotions may result in academic probation. Standing exceptions include approved leaves and approved dual degree/research tracks which require a modified curriculum. Committee on Student Promotions recommendations that involve/require extensions of the 4-year rule are de facto approval of the extension time. Extension of the time allowed for satisfaction of the requirements for graduation beyond six years from time of matriculation will require specific action by the Committee on Student Promotions.
