Nursing Academic Progression
Students must complete each nursing (NUR) course in the foundational areas of their major with a “C” or higher. Any grade that is lower than a 75(in each NUR course) will prevent the student’s progression in the nursing program. Students must complete all other non-NUR courses with a “C” to progress in the program.
For all NUR courses and PSY 1050 (taught at Vermont Technical College): Assignments and exam grades will be calculated to the nearest tenth; and the final course grade will be calculated to the nearest tenth and will not be rounded.
Dental Hygiene and Respiratory Academic Progression
Students must complete each academic course in the foundational areas of their major with a “C” or higher. Any grade that is lower than a 75 will be considered a failing grade in that course.
Students may not progress from one semester to another without successful completion of all preceding courses. For nursing students, courses which are considered foundational are all courses with the prefix NUR or BIO. Courses considered foundational for Dental Hygiene are all courses carrying the prefix DHY or BIO.
