Robert Noiva, Ph.D.

Date Issued:

August 1, 2011

Last Update:

March 27, 2014

Scope and Applicability:

All students enrolled in the School of Medicine

Standard Practice Guideline:

Good academic standing is the designation given when a student has either received "Pass"
or "Honors" in all coursework. Any unremediated "Fail" or an "Incomplete" on a student
record in any academic year will disqualify a student from being in good academic standing.


Good academic standing is required for most internship, externship, research, school-sponsored travel and class leadership opportunities.


Students can receive a verification of Good Academic Standing from the Director of School of Medicine Records and Registration.
