College of Pharmacy Student Handbook 2023-2024

116 Barry and Judy Silverman College of Pharmacy 2023–2024 • they fail three or more courses in a given semester, or • they have taken three remedial examinations since matriculation into the program, or • their semester GPA is < 2.0, or • they fail a repeated course. A successful remediation by reassessment will result in a grade change from F to C- and recorded as such on the student transcript. An unsuccessful remediation attempt will not count as a second course failure; instead, the original failing grade earned will remain on the transcript. It is the students’ responsibility to be available on the date and time the remediation examination/ reassessment is scheduled. Students who miss a remediation examination will not be offered a makeup examination and will receive a grade of zero for the examination. Course Repetition Students failing a course who are ineligible for remediation by reassessment, or who earn a failing grade (< 69.50%) on the remediation reassessment, will be required to repeat the course the next time it is offered. The course may also be taken at a regionally accredited institution or academic unit within NSU after review of the course syllabus, and the associate dean of the student’s program, in consultation with the course coordinator, determines the equivalency of the course to the Silverman College of Pharmacy course it will be replacing. Prior to registering for an equivalent-approved course outside of NSU’s Silverman College of Pharmacy, the student must obtain approval from the associate dean of the student’s program. Repetition of a previously failed course does not remove it from the total failures permitted over the course of the program. If the student fails on the second attempt through course repetition, the student will be ineligible for remediation by reassessment and will be dismissed from the program (refer to Academic Dismissal Policy). Audit Policy The privilege of taking classes on a noncredit basis is available to students. Maximum credit hours are not to exceed the allowable credit hours for the program. Auditing a course requires registration, which must be completed during the standard registration period. The practice of “sitting in” on classes (attending, with or without participation, classes for which the student is not registered and paying fees) is not allowed. Auditing a course carries full rights of class participation and instructor appointments and offers no academic credit. Although an instructor may require that the student complete graded assignments and examinations, only an AU (Audit) grade is assigned. Subsequent credit for the course is not available through any means (e.g., registration may not be changed from audit to credit; a student may not enroll at a future time for the audited course). Students must complete the Course Audit Request Form, which is available from their program office.
