6.1.8 ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION DURING APPEAL
Students shall have the right to attend classes, to pursue their academic programs, and to participate in University functions during the consideration of any academic appeal. [US: 4/11/83]
Those students who have patient contact in clinical practicum courses will not be able to continue patient contact in the courses during an appeal, if the appeal relates to clinical competence in regard to performance. Insofar as practicable, such appeals shall be expedited. [US: 4/25/88; US: 4/10/2000]
Attendance and participation may be limited
- when outside agencies are used as part of the student’s educational experience. In this situation, precedence will be given to the terms of any agreement(s) which have been negotiated between the University and the agency.
- when patient/client contact is involved in the student’s educational experience. In this situation, only patient/client contact will be limited or excluded at the discretion of program faculty. [US: 4/10/2000]
