Retention and Promotion Policy
For retention and promotion in the Nursing Program, the student must, in the judgment of the faculty, satisfy the requirements of health, conduct, and scholastic achievement. In addition to meeting the established criteria of the parent institutions, the student:
- Must schedule all courses to meet the requirements for this course of study in a course sequence pattern as outlined in the curriculum display in the York Technical College and University of South Carolina Lancaster Catalogs.
- Must achieve a cumulative 2.0 grade point ratio on all courses, which count toward graduation in the program.
- Must make a grade of “C” or better in theory in each nursing course attempted and receive a clinical evaluation of “Satisfactory.”
A student who receives a “D”, “F”, or “W” in any required nursing course may repeat that course one time only. A maximum of one nursing courses may be repeated for progression in the program. In order to repeat a nursing course, the student must follow the readmission policy for the Nursing Program found in the current Nursing Student Handbook. Readmission will depend on space available in the course to be repeated.
Students will be eligible for academic forgiveness 5 years after the last nursing course attempted and may apply for readmission to the first nursing course.
