College of Pharmacy Student Handbook 2023-2024

26 Nova Southeastern University Student Handbook • An infected student returning to school after a leave of absence for reasons related to a communicable disease must provide a statement from the treating physician indicating current medical status. Students should submit their statement to their program dean or appropriate designee based on the policies of their respective college, academic center, and the associate dean of Student Affairs. • Within reason, the university will make arrangements for the infected person, whenever possible, to ensure continuity in the classroom. • No infected student may be dismissed from the university solely on the basis of a diagnosis of an infection of a contagious disease. A decision to dismiss or discharge will only be made after appropriate arrangements to assist the student have been attempted, and an examination of facts demonstrates that the infected person can no longer perform essential requirements of the position or program, with or without such arrangements, or poses a reasonable threat to the health and safety of others. In the event that a student has a concern about the potential for the spread of a communicable disease within the university community, those concerns should be brought to the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs for review consistent with the current available information on the spread of the particular communicable disease. After review and evaluation of the concerns, if there appears to be a reasonable likelihood of the spread of the disease within the university community by an infected person, the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs will, after notification of the issues presented to the university president, contact the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and/or Broward Health Department for recommendations of appropriate action consistent with state law. A.7 Holds on Student Records A bursar hold is placed on a student’s account on the 30th day of the semester if a balance is still due. The bursar hold prevents students from obtaining grades, registering for classes, and accessing the university’s RecPlex until the balance is paid in full. Other university entities, such as the Office of the University Registrar and the Office of Student Conduct, may place a hold on a student’s account for different reasons. Students must contact the office that initiated the hold(s) to discuss what requirements must be met to have the hold(s) removed. To view their hold(s), students must log in to SharkLink.
