Continuation in the EAP will require evidence of academic progress consistent with past performance. It will also require significant progress toward achieving individually specified goals outlined in the conditions of acceptance.
In addition, the following criteria must be maintained by the student to continue eligibility:
- Carry sufficient credit load during the remaining regular academic semesters to fulfill undergraduate degree requirements.
- Maintain an overall (cumulative) GPA of 3.5 or better (on a 4.0 scale) with consistent academic performance.
- Satisfactorily complete required prerequisites.
- Fulfill all institution and degree requirements to maintain status as a student in good standing (no academic or conduct code violations) and earn a bachelor’s degree prior to matriculating in the MD program.
- Complete the additional specific conditions set by the Joint Program at the time of acceptance (i.e., official transcripts must be submitted throughout the remaining undergraduate academic career every semester).
- Remain free of any actions or conduct that would cause the admissions committee to question a student's suitability to pursue a career in medicine which can include, but are not limited to, misdemeanor or felony convictions, academic dishonesty, other code of conduct violations, and/or unprofessional conduct in a healthcare or educational setting.
Failure to meet or maintain these eligibility standards will constitute grounds for dismissal from the program. However, dismissal from the EAP does not affect the student's ability to apply to the MD program through the conventional application process.
