The School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health System's (BIOMED) policies supplement and, in some cases, may be more restrictive than Drexel University policy. BIOMED encourages all students to familiarize themselves with both the School's and the University's academic policies.
For students who have not registered for more than four (4) consecutive terms or who had officially withdrawn from the University (Readmission):
Undergraduate students previously enrolled at Drexel who have not registered for four (4) consecutive terms or had officially withdrawn from the University may apply directly for readmission by completing an "Application for Readmission Form," which is available from the Drexel Central website. If the student meets the minimum requirements listed below and left the University in good academic standing, he or she should make an appointment to meet with an academic advisor in the School to complete the readmission process.
The minimum requirements for readmission into the School are as follows:
- The student was previously accepted into a degree program at Drexel University.
- The student maintained a 2.00 or greater term grade point average (GPA) and 2.00 or greater cumulative GPA*.
- There are no student holds (e.g., financial) that will impede readmission.
- The student was not dismissed due to academic dishonesty or any misconduct that violates the University's Student Code of Conduct. For details on student conduct, please review the Student Handbook.
If readmission is granted, the student should make an appointment to meet with a BIOMED academic advisor to complete the readmission process.
*Any incomplete or unresolved grade will be considered an "F" unless evidence of an official submission of a course drop or course withdrawal request can be supplied to the School upon review of the student's readmission request.
A cumulative GPA of 2.00 is required for graduation for all undergraduate programs at the University. If a student's term or cumulative GPA is less than 2.00 at the end of any term, the student will be notified and placed on probation. An undergraduate student will be academically dismissed from the University if the student's term or cumulative GPA falls below 1.00 or if the student is placed on academic probation for three consecutive terms.
For students who have been dismissed for academic reasons (Reinstatement):
Undergraduate students who have been academically dismissed have the right to appeal the decision. The School's Committee on Academic Standing will set aside appointment times at the beginning of each quarter to meet with students who wish to appeal the School's decision to dismiss them due to poor scholarship. Dismissed students should contact the BIOMED office as soon as possible to arrange a meeting to discuss their reinstatement options. Additional information about the University's Academic Standing policy is available on the Provost's website.
If an appeal is successful, the student will be required to sign an academic progress agreement, which is intended to help the student achieve good academic standing as quickly as academically feasible. A copy of this agreement is given to the student. Additionally, the student must sign an Authorization for Reinstatement from Academic Dismissal form before his or her reinstatement may be processed. The Reinstatement form is sent to the Office of the University Registrar for processing and retention in the student's academic record folder.
Any subsequent academic dismissal action for which the student has not met the agreed upon academic progress goals will result in final dismissal from the School.
