Academic Progression and Retention in the Radiography Program

For students enrolled in radiography (RAD), numerical grades below 80% (B) in radiography (RAD) and 70% (C) biology (BIO) courses are considered unsatisfactory attainment of course competency. In these instances, students will not be allowed to progress in the program.

Test Grades

  • During the course, if a student scores less than 80% (B) on any evaluation instrument, a mandatory counseling session will be scheduled with the instructor and/or other academic counselor. This session will emphasize strategies for success on future evaluations and will be geared to the retention of the student.
  • It is the responsibility of any student who decides to drop this course to officially withdraw from the course to avoid a grade of F. Student may be administratively withdrawn as it becomes evident that they cannot meet course objectives due to lack of attendance.

Curriculum Progression

Students who achieve a minimum of 80% (B) overall competency for each radiography (RAD) course will be eligible to progress in the radiography program. In addition, for radiography (RAD) courses which are comprised of both a class and laboratory component, a minimum of 80% (B) must be achieved in both class and laboratory components in order to progress in the radiography (RAD) curriculum. Numerical grades below 80% (B) in radiography (RAD) courses are considered unsatisfactory attainment of course competencies and will result in termination from the program.

Course Final Exams

Students who achieve a minimum of 80% (B) or higher on each radiography (RAD) course comprehensive final exam will earn a course grade calculated using all evaluative assessments and the comprehensive final exam per the course syllabus. Progression in the curriculum will continue as designed. However, students who make less that 80% (B) on any RAD course comprehensive final exam will receive the grade earned, but cannot progress in the radiography curriculum.
