Academic Dismissal

By action of the Student Academic Officer, students may be dismissed from PCOM for academic deficiency in accordance with criteria set forth in their program’s student handbook. Written notice of the dismissal action will be sent to the student, which will include information about eligibility to appeal the dismissal (see Appealing an Academic Dismissal Decision, below).

Dismissal for reasons other than academic deficiency is governed by policies and procedures for non-academic dismissals set forth elsewhere in this handbook and individual program student handbooks. Examples include but are not limited to violation of the College’s Standards of Conduct, violations of local, state or federal law, unprofessional behavior, and criminal activity, or other reasons as set forth in the College Standards of Conduct and Ethics Code, which appear in this handbook.
