If a student makes below a ‘C’ in any course, that student must sit out for one year, may then reapply to the program (if approved by Program Director) to retake that semester, and then move forward after successful completion having a grade of ‘C’ or better. If the student has a grade below a ‘C’ a second time in the same course, or any other course anytime during the program, that student will be dismissed from the program. If a student has a family/medical emergency or other special situation the OTD Program Director may allow the student to return to the program the following year. If any changes are made noting specific course prerequisites for specific subsequent courses, students will be notified of these changes in writing. Concurrent enrollment in courses in each semester is expected.
