Students in the Ph.D. and M.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences programs must achieve a minimum grade of B- (79.50–82.49%) to pass a course. Grade assignment is made using the policy above, and no exceptions will be made in situations where a student grade is close. *Failed courses should be repeated the next time they are offered in the curriculum and no later than the next academic year. Postponement in retaking a course may result in a later graduation date. Remediation Policy Remediation by Reassessment Students earning a failing grade (< 69.50%) in a course within the Pharm.D. program may remediate one course per semester by reassessment through a cumulative examination or other assessment method (e.g., performance-based assessment, capstone assignment, etc.). Remediation by reassessment is a privilege, not a right, and the offer of a remedial examination is determined by the associate dean of the student’s program. Decisions regarding a student’s eligibility for remediation by reassessment are made at the end of each semester following calculation of all semester final grades. Students may be eligible if • the grade earned in a failed course is 59.50% to 69.49%, and • the semester GPA is ≥ 2.0. Students are ineligible for remediation by reassessment if
