Academic Success Council

The Academic Success Council (ASC) has the responsibility to monitor academic performance and professionalism for medical students, assist them with academic and professional issues, and make recommendations regarding a student’s promotion, remediation, probation, suspension, or dismissal. The ASC also maintains direct responsibility for academic actions, such as involuntary leave of absence, suspension, dismissals and return to registration from leave of absence, and decisions on student appeals of such actions.
