Appeal of Admission Criteria
A student who does not meet the established admission criteria may appeal to TEARAC to begin internship or residency below the set criteria, with five exceptions:
A student may not appeal to begin an internship placement if they have not completed a successful interview that resulted in a confirmed placement.
A student may not appeal the decision of a department to not approve an interview or begin an internship.
A student may not appeal a low GPA.
A student may appeal a grade below a “C” only if
- the student’s overall GPA is 2.50 or above and
- if the student’s department gives written approval for the student to appeal to TEARAC.
- A student may not appeal a low Basic Skills Requirement score (Reading, Writing, or Math).
