At Risk

The “at risk” notification to the student is the Program’s due diligence in making the student aware of their unsatisfactory status. "At risk" indicates they are at risk for not being promoted to the next semester. 

An "at risk" notification may be rendered when the student has:

  • Failed one or more exams;
  • Scored below expected levels of performance on assignments;
  • Has achieved an unacceptable professionalism rating; and/or
  • Is mathematically at risk for failing one or more courses.

Students receiving "at risk" notifications may:

  • Be required to step down from elected or appointed student leadership positions;
  • Not participate in elective clinical courses;
  • May be placed with clinical preceptors in Colorado and well-known to the Program; and/or
  • May be subject to loss of scholarship funds.

A student may appear before the SAPC, either at the request of the student or the Committee and may choose to be accompanied by an advocate, a faculty member, or another student.
