Students who receive a passing P grade in all modules in a given year, and who receive a P or UP grade on both OSCEs prior to the end of the academic year (when SPEC convenes), and who exhibit satisfactory professional behavior in a given year shall be promoted to the next year in good academic standing unless otherwise recommended by SPEC. The SPEC will review for promotion each student who receives a failing grade (F or U) in the preceding academic year and may elect to promote or withhold that student. The SPEC can also elect to promote a student it places on academic or non- academic probation. A student who receives an F or U grade in two modules will not be promoted until successfully repeating the academic year.
