The Final Grade for each clinical laboratory discipline is a composite of the clinical rotation and lecture performance. The final grade is determined in the following manner:
- Final Grade = Lecture Grade (weighted 40%) + Final Clinical Rotation Grade (weighted 60%)
An overall grade point average of 70% or above is required, with a minimum of 70% in each major clinical laboratory discipline in order for the School of Medical Laboratory Science to award a certificate of successful completion. Appeals for change of grade are handled initially with specific clinical rotation or lecture faculty and the intern requesting the grade review. If arbitration is necessary, the program director will intervene. An intern has recourse to the Intern Appeal Process (detailed in the Intern Manual).
For 3 + 1 interns, unless otherwise specified, incomplete grades are submitted to the affiliated university at the end of each semester. Upon graduation from the Clinical Program, Final Grades are submitted and the university awards the appropriate credit and the baccalaureate degree.
